Good morning, I'm wondering if you can tell me where I can buy Opuntia '' Baby Rita '' in UK or Europe because I do not find it in Italy and in the US. It is forbidden to import, I'm waiting for your answer thank you:Sorriso:

Hi there

I was able to find some plant nurseries in the US that say they have this plant on sale.

Such as this one:

I think there are rules to stop plants being sent in the post so I think you have to find a supplier where you are.

Good luck with it.
