Hi Cactus Jungle
Could you tell me why this cactus is turning somewhat white…
Last year, I bought some kelp because it was turning yellow
and that did the trick, but now it seems to have a new color.
what to do?
Did this Opuntia get turned around or moved recently? It looks like sunburn-bleaching… plants, like us have to develop a “suntan” to protect themselves from UV and if the north side is turned to the south or it is moved from inside to outside in to sun it can get a sunburn just like we can on our first spring trip to the beach.
You may need to trim off the top really damaged pad and let the lower part heal. It should “bark” over time.
thanks…I guess it had already had gotten “tough” from last
summer’s “all day in the sun” experience…guess not..
