Cylindropuntia ramosissima

Cylindropuntia ramosissima is Mojave desert plant. It forms low bushes, and prefers dryer flats to slops and rocks where many other cacti usually found.
This plant almost never present in cactus collections, but not difficult to grow and relatively compact. This species is cold hardy and does well with wet winters. The growing period starts in mid-spring, and to induce flowering watering has to be stopped completely after a month or so after the new stems started developing. This way some of the new stem segments will convert into flower buds.
