Barrel cactus

Barrel cactus plants are characterized by their ribbed, cylindrical shape.  The barrel cactus cares for lost travelers in the desert because it habitually grows tilted to the southwest. 

Potted cactus should be kept in the warmest room of the home in a bright sunny location. Prepared cactus mixes are suitable for growing barrel cactus. 

The barrel cactus doesn’t need much water in winter when it is dormant. Water once between December and February. Adequate water in spring may cause the plant to produce a large yellow flower.
