Echinocactus grusonii is a magnificent barrel cactus, often called Mother-in-Law's Pillow or Mother-in-Law's Cushion. It is deeply ribbed, each of which is covered in creamy yellow spines. Woolly white hairs grow on the crown and cup-shaped, vivid yellow flowers may form on mature plants. An all round spiky ball of fun.
Golden Barrel Cactus is easy to look after, but they do need plenty of bright light.
Stop the Rot! Allow your cactus’ soil to completely dry-out between waterings as excess water can lead to root rot.
Summertime Sadness? A little extra moisture wouldn’t go amiss during summer months.
Shade-Seeker! Your Golden Barrel Cactus may suffer in the sunlight. For best results, find a location with a lot of bright indirect light.
