I'm reknowned in the office as the plant reviver so a lot of people bring me their plants in an attempt to save them. Someone brought me this cactus the other day and I cannot figure out what it is. My only thought it is a prickly pear that didn't get enough water and/or light or some other opuntia that should be a lot thicker. Any ideas on what it is and how I can help?

It needs more sun and better soil, I think a smaller pot would also help. Other members will have more advice for you Green Grin!
