If the player has already gone into the Kalphite hive, he will simply say, "No thanks, I don't want any" when spoken to.
With the release of the Desert achievements, after a player has completed all achievements in this area, they can collect 20, 30, or 40 noted potato cacti once per day (20 with Desert amulet 2, 30 for Desert amulet 3, and 40 with Desert amulet 4).
(Worth 7,560, 11,340 or 15,120)
The fastest way to get to the Weird Old Man is to use the fairy ring network, dial BIQ, and then walk north-west.
