Product Details

Highlights

Miniature Barrel Cactus (Echinocactus platyacanthus or Hamatocactus) (E.F. Anderson): A twisted globose cactus with long white to yellow spines. It has 13 bumpy, wavy ribs that spiral their way up the stem. In the summer it can produce a succession of yellow, funnel-shaped blooms that turn into red, round fruits. It is native to southern Texas and northern Mexico. This species grows to 8.0" to 12.0" tall and rarely produces offsets.

This variety of cactus will not survive a frost, but if there is a risk of freezing temperatures it can be brought indoors to grow on a sunny window sill or under a grow light. Cactus need bright sunlight, great drainage, and infrequent water to prevent rot. Pick containers with drainage holes and use well-draining cactus and succulent soil with 70% to 80% mineral grit such as coarse sand, pumice, or perlite. Water deeply and wait for the soil to completely dry out before watering again.
