👑The Athletic Mystery “Pala” - extra big fat pup
This is my go-to medicinal plant, and you should grow more of it. Pala is a bit of a mystery, but I’m 90% sure it’s a bridge x peru. Depending on conditions, it can be indistinguishable from Lumberjack, and I’ve called it “JumberLack” because of this, but I’m sticking with “Pala” from now on — the name of the small Cali town it originally shipped from.
To be cut upon purchase. For all post purchase cuttings, allow a minimum of 1 week before shipment, as the exposed cut area needs time to start callousing. It’s not that uncommon (20-ish% of the time) for small black oozy “stress blisters” to form after cutting. This might be oogly, but it’s also a *NORMAL* stress reaction to being cut. These black spots (if they appear) are *NOT* fungal/virus/rot/infection, and will soon stabilize and callous before rooting. I do not issue refunds due to stress blistering, your cutting is fine! Don’t be such a weenie, geez 🙄😉
The cactus you see here is the same cactus you get. We only sell healthy cactus, but there’s always a chance of minor blemishes, marks, black stress blisters, scars and imperfections. All plants are hard grown rough-n-tumble without pesticides.
This plant requires protection from freezing weather, but will tolerate high 20s on rare occasion with frost covering. The Cactus Jones ships from a warm climate zone (no freezing), but please be aware of the weather in your area — will not refund for temperature related damage, whether frozen or cooked.
