The Golden Barrel Cactus, also known as Golden Ball Cactus or Mother-in-Law's Cushion, stands out due to his golden spines which contrast beautifully against its round, deep green body. An easy-to-care-for fellow, he can grow up to three feet tall and three feet round, much like a barrel… the clue is always in the name! Give this desert lover plenty of warmth and sun.

Cactus Care Guide

Light Requirements

Bright, indirect light to full sun

This cactus will survive the brightest of window sills! Preferably a southern or western facing window as they tend to be the brightest.

Watering Schedule

Every 2 - 3 weeks in full sun

Watering when soil is completely dry or when you see shrinkage. Very prone to overwatering

Humidity

Lower Humidity

Cacti do not have any particular humidity requirements - but are not suited to very humid environments like bathrooms or terrariums.

Sad Plant Signs

Wrinkled stem or leaves, yellowing, mushy leaves

Wrinkled leaves: under-watering. Yellowing and mushy leaves: overwatering

Plant Bio

Echinocactus grusonii

Originating from East-Central Mexico, this plant grows in volcanic rock and at altitudes around 1,400 metres! In the wild it’s estimated life span is 30 years. Being desert lovers, the Golden Barrels love plenty of warmth and sun. They are easy to care for hardy plants, that can survive at temperatures of −8 °C but only for brief periods.

Style tip

Bring the outside inside

If you’re lucky enough to have a window with a sill, this is a great space to fill with cactus plants. Your plants will thrive in this light environment and can bring a lot of vibrancy into your space.
