- 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.
