  • About Plant- Golden barrel cacti, of the genus Echinocactus grusonii, are perfectly suited for growing indoors in areas where the plant can get plenty of sunlight. Amusingly, the plant's nickname is "mother-in-law cushion."

    Barrel cacti, as the name implies, are almost perfectly round when juvenile, so they make excellent display plants. They are highly attractive, given the evenly spaced rows or spines of their deeply ribbed lobes.


    Golden Barrel Cactus Care


    Light- A barrel cactus does best in a very sunny window, perhaps a southern exposure. Plants that do not get enough sunlight will grow slowly and fail to thrive.


    Temperature- While the plant favors warm, dry conditions, the cactus can tolerate temperatures down to 50 degrees Fahrenheit.


    Water- Water infrequently, and ensure that the soil drains completely. Do not leave any water sitting in the tray or allow them to sit in water. Golden Barrel cacti are very prone to root rot.


    Soil- A cactus soil mix is ideal. If you use a regular peat-based mix, be sure to add sand or extra perlite to enhance drainage. 


    Fertilizer- Feed with a weak liquid cactus fertilizer throughout the growing season.
