Ferocactus electracanthus


| /

Ferocactus electracanthus, like all cacuts in the Ferocactus group, is an eye-catching plant which grows slowly into a large barrel shape, reaching 40-50cm in 15-30 years. Throughout it's life the Ferocactus electracanthus maintains it's interesting body shape and pretty cream-coloured spines, which can appear a red/orange colour.

Like most cactus, Ferocactus electracanthus grows best in a gritty, well-draining mix which allows it's roots to dry in-between watering. This plant prefers to grow in partial shade, where it can get all the benefits of bright sunlight without being scorched.
