Echinocereus grusonii

Echinocereus grusonii


One of the most popularly grown cacti in the world is Echinocereus grusonii, also known as the golden barrel cactus. It is confined to a small region in east-central Mexico, specifically the states of Queretaro and Zacatecas, at an elevation of roughly 1,400 metres. It is a lovely plant that adds texture, colour, and shape to landscapes and has a significant aesthetic impact. Unique features include the remarkable spherical shape and the spectacular golden bright-yellow spines, which completely glow in the sun. The “golden barrels” are more attractive as they mature. They can be genuinely majestic as mature specimens. When planted closely together, they look their best.
