So I had ordered a couple large pads from tortoisesupply.com and they were nice, but all the opuntia/prickly pear pads seem pretty pricey to feed to them all the time. I wanted something more sustainable. I was in Florida last week and figured it'd be a good time to get a plant. After passing up stealing some from a garden or the natural dunes, I found a large one at a garden center for 45 bucks that they sold me for 25 cuz it was marked wrong. It's pretty big and I'm kinda wondering if I should cut some of it and start a second plant. And how much I can safely cut off to feed frank. I'm even thinkino of starting a smaller pad in the dragon cage behind the plant. It has a desert uvb light and gets lots of sun. Any suggestions or opinions?
