There is a plant that looks the prickly pear that is growing outside of my work. I found a piece that was broken off and had some rot. Is there any chance I can save it???

I replanted what i thought was a two jointed section of a prickly pear. It grew two yellow flowers. From those two flowers starting growing what i thought would be new joints. They are growing long and curling around the plant and does not look like the bigger joints. It does not get much light so I am wondering is this really a prickly pear and is the lack of sunlight changing it? If it isn't a prickly pear what is it? Thanks.

if you are stuck with one and the prickle remains lodged can it be poisoness

I got a few cactus plants from a nursery close my home. The owner told me that it's called prickle pear or hardy cactus. It's does not have too much long torns in the middle of the leaves. So I don't know are they called prickle pear? ( I saw another one similiar but they have more torns and the leaves smaller than mine.)
The point is I really love it but don't know how to take care of it. I notice that they have some yellowish color and big black spots on the leaves. I don't know because of too much rain ( I live in Portland, Oregon.) or the soil is not drain enough. I really wander can they survive in the winter and rain? and how to take care of them? what kind of food should I feed them? I really love these cactus and don't want to lose them.

Hope to hear from you soon!

Thank You.
color on the leaves.

I have what I believe to be some form of the prickly pear cactus in my yard, although it doesn't have the thorns in the center. It's very cold and pods are dying.Should I cut back the dead pods and wait to see what happens?
