Martin there for our baby tortoises, the reason for needing fertalizer and pestacide free pads.
Beacuse i only feed it few times a week and at a small amount they dont go thru the pads to fast so it lasts me awhile, i just ran out of the ones i had about 2 weeks ago #-o and i need to get some ASAP.

sorry I usually put fert on my O. ficus-indica to help them grow but I might be able to get some pads off a different plant that I don't put anything on.
Here's to you, all you insidious creatures of green..er I mean cacti.

I do have some Opuntia ellisiana pads that I need to trim off if you are interested. I have never fertilized or used insecticide on them, however it is near my lawn which I fertilized in March I believe, but I have never directly fertilized the cactus garden. :-k What do you think?

I won't be able to ship them till atleast June 11 though, if you are interested.

I sure hope that your husband is/gets well!
