Contact forms

Currently, we do not use contact forms.  


Normally, we do not allow the upload of anything to our website (*) from nonauthors. But, we do accept images via email for upload by us. 

If you should arrange to provide images that we will upload, you should avoid images with embedded location data (EXIF, GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website, and you may wish to keep such information private. We try to strip metadata from images at the time of upload. 

Embedded content from other websites

Materials on this site could include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.).  Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website (e.g., YouTube). We do not place embedded content in images we (the authors/editors have provided. 

Other websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website. 

When you view a video we have embedded from, you will be taken to YouTube at the conclusion of the video.

  1. Is there any way to get an Opuntia variety identified? I have pictures of the plants and fruit, and I can tell you about where it’s from. I apologize if I am bothering you, and any help you are able to provide would be greatly appreciated.

  2. Cassandra,

    We can try to ID the plant. It helps if you have pictures from a few feet away, from close to the pad, of a flower, and of a fruit. Just send them to me at [email protected]. We will do our best.
