Blue Barrel Cactus Seeds (Ferocactus glaucescens) 20+Seeds
Ferocactus glaucescens is a generally solitary, barrel cactus with bluish green stems up to 22 inches (55 cm) tall and up to 20 inches (50 cm) in diameter. 11 to 15 ribs. 0 or 1 central spine, very similar to the radials. Straight, light yellow 6 or 7 radial spines, up to 1.6 inches (4 cm) long. Lemon yellow, funnel-shaped flowers, up to 1.6 inches (4 cm) in diameter. White, up to 0.8 inch (2 cm) long fruits with the remnants of the flowers attached.
Choose a planting location that receives direct sun during all or most of the day. Water the cactus at the time of planting to anchor it into the soil. Plant your Barrel Cactus in early spring before new roots begin to form in late June and early July. The roots may appear dry, but that is typical before new growth begins. Dig a hole deep enough for the plant’s roots and amend it as needed to provide fast-draining soil.
