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.
