Light Requirement: As desert cacti, prickly pears require maximum sunlight to thrive and should be kept in the brightest indoor light possible.

Container Size: 1″ starter plant, *Terra Cotta pot in photo display sold separately


Bloom Season: Spring, Summer


Plant Growth: Upright, slightly branching.


Plant Color: Variegated: Green/White/Pink

USDA Hardiness Zone: Find Your Zone
9, 10, 11, 12

Special Characteristics:

  • Sun, sun, sun! The more light it receives, the more likely it is to bloom and fruit. The fruit is edible and delicious!
  • The more light received, the more colorful the foliage.
  • Wait until the plant begins to wrinkle a bit, then give it a good drink. As with a new cutting, make sure not to water a newly repotted prickly pear for a brief period to avoid rotting its roots.
  • Skill Level: Beginner

1" STARTER PLANT *Terracotta pot in photo sold separately. Meet Lilah. This cute spunky girl can't wait to spread her cascading rainbow of colorful foliage into your living space. Looking like little pink bows, her fleshy leaves are a mixture of white, green, pink, and mauve stripes and blotches. Treat her right and she may even reward you with her small white flowers.

Lilah loves a good hair cut, and asks that you keep her maintained. Her trailing tendrils have a tendency to get leggy, so pruning them becomes a must if you want to maintain a healthy appearance. Lilah is a plant that you need to know: low maintenance, fun, and easy!
