Potted Pals: Two 6" Golden Barrel Cacti!
From left to right: Echinocactus Grusonii 'Golden Barrel Cactus' and Echinocactus Grusonii 'Golden Barrel Cactus.'
Golden Barrel Cacti have dazzling golden spines line along the sides of their globe shape. At the top, beautiful yellow flowers emerge from its wool patch after a very long time. They grow to be very large and have a spherical shape. Golden Barrels if taken good care of can become HUGE and have a lifespan of 30 years.
Golden Barrels have other funny nicknames such as the golden ball or mother-in-law's cushion!
When handling, it's best to use gloves to protect your hands from its not-so-friendly spines!
Golden Barrels come in our very own nursery pots with amazing drainage. They're very sturdy potted plants that won't let you down.
Golden Barrel Cactus "Echinocactus Grusonii" grows very slowly! It takes years and years for the Golden Barrel to become larger than 10 inches. The Golden Barrel Potted Pal is beginner-friendly. It needs very little attention to thrive. Plenty of sunshine keeps the Golden Barrel as happy as can be. Not enough sunlight and over-watering are common mistakes. Water the Golden Barrel only when the soil is completely dry!
Potted Pals Size and Look:
Your new Potted Pals sizes are based on the diameter of the nursery pot they are currently in (4", 6", or 10" inches). The potted plants themselves may be a little bigger or a little smaller than the nursery pot they are grown in, depending on how they grow and what time of the year it is.
Each Potted Pal is unique and while we do our best to ship plants as similar to those you see in the picture above, please keep in mind that all plants look slightly different. Potted Plants, even though they may have specific names, vary in color, size, and shape. That's what makes each Potted Pal special. There's beauty in imperfection :)
Our plants are watered before shipping during summer times to keep the soil and the roots moist. During the winter, we try and keep the soil as dry as possible to prevent freezing.
Our Potted Pals team works hard to make sure your potted plants leave in the best conditions and arrive safely. Shippers, however, can be a little rough with packages, and mishaps can happen. If your Potted Pals arrive damaged, reach out to us with pictures and your number order. We will make things right.
