This is a Cacti I saved after it looked dead in my Mums Greenhouse, nothing like the original Cacti though as it had prickles on the mother plant but maybe they will come later when it matures? :o))
Oh! I just notice some prickles at the bottom of the plant in my picture lol.
Can anyone name the Cacti for me?

Opuntia cylindrica :o)
The green leaves will fall in time, and it will become spiny. More green leaves will develop on the top, as it grows.

Strange plant Essex Girl, can be prickly as Hywel says, according to google images. I think of Opuntia as those flat cacti, like mickey mouse ears. There were lots of them in gardens in Pollensa.
