Ferocactus glaucesens inermis


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.

Ferocactus Inermis isn't Ferocious

Without the wild spines Ferocacti are renowned for, Ferocactus inermis is friendly to the touch, not at all ferocious. Its bare stem appears sculpted, and if dust blows on it, it is easy to wipe off. From exposure to the sun, the color has changed from blue-green to yellow-green, but it's still beautiful.

Looked great when it arrived

I’ve always been very happy with my purchases. I’m having a problem with my cat pulling them out of the pot, she has pulled this one out twice now. I’m hoping it will survive.
