Ferocactus glaucesens
Ferocactus glaucescens

Origin and Habitat: Eastern central Mexico,

Also known as blue barrel cactus, Ferocactus glaucescens is a medium sized solitary or basally suckering, barrel cactus. Multiple heads are produced as the plant ages and can form a very large mound.
Stems: Glaucous grey, up to 55 cm in height, 50 cm in diameter
Flowers: Lemon yellow,
Blooming season: Late spring and summer. The flowers last a very long time. The plants start flowering when about 13 cm in diameter.

Cultivation and Propagation: Plants are slow growing to start, but are easy to grow and require little care once they have reached a nice flowering size. F. glaucescens is suited for any rich, well drained soil in full sun, through-out the year. Pot culture: It grows best in a fairly roomy, well-drained container filled with a porous cactus soil mixture that doesn't contain too much humus. A wet cactus in the sun light can cause sun burning which can lead to scars, or even fungal infections and death. In winter keep completely dry at 10°C. This usually aids in maintaining a healthier plant, but it can tolerate sporadic light frost.

My little plant

I have been purchasing many variety of different types of cactus from Homedepot , Lowes, Amazon and Planet desert. When I received my plants from planet desert I expected bigger and was also disappointed with the time of shipping which cost $18 which were to be delivered in two days turn into 5 days. It doesn't give you the option on shipping . $18 and to be delivered in two days which isn't the case. I decided not to purchase online plants because either I receive damage, tiny or shipment is not on time. But overall my cute little plant looks healthy. One day I can laugh about the cost and the lesson learned. The convenience of online might be to push a screen but the over all experiences of purchasing plants are to go to the store and see and select what you want in a plant. Size, Cost and the health of the plant and soil. No better experience. This is only my opinion.
