    There’s a vender out of Florida who sells opetunia pads with no glochids. I bought from him before, seemed like a solid vendor. Until my last order. It’s been almost a month. He promises he’ll send “next week” and then says “sorry. It’s raining so much”.

    He again promised to send next week, despite the upcoming hurricane, so I’ve begun to worry I’m being strung along and need to get refunded.

    Does anyone else know where to get spineless opetunia with no glochids?

    Is it SOUTHERN REPTILES?
    If so, I have no answer. It has been raining. But this time of year it rains EVERY DAY.
    If not, he sells them.
    Like all "spineless" cactus, they simply have fewer spines or glochids.
    I have two large spineless cactuses. But they still poke me every now and again.
