Commonly known as the ‘Paper Spine Cactus’ and from the subfamily Opuntioideae, it is also known as the Opuntia articulata. So nothing to confuse here, no, not at all. Originating from Argentina, they are cultivated in warm desert climates - such as Phoenix, Arizona. Usually growing in branches up to 12’’high, with white flowers., they propagate through cuttings and stem segments can easily break away and happily root The segments are fragile, subglobose/ short cylindrical, rather like a string of beads… this lovely weirdo enjoys indirect sunlight and good drainage.
