The barrel cactus is primarily suited for growing in garden rockery settings, desert type landscapes, patios and botanical gardens. They are grown indoors inside conservatories or other glass rooms where enough sunlight is provided. However, they seem to have great difficulty flowering indoors.

  • Sunlight: Direct sunlight and partial sunlight
  • Water: Cactus require a small amount of water every once in a while, during each watering give the soil a good soaking so that the water runs out of the drainage holes.
  • Fertiliser: Keep plant in top form by feeding the plants every few weeks with a dilute solution of liquid fertilizer.
  • Plant size: approx. 30cm (vary in sizes)
  • Rootball size: 17cm x 17cm
  • Pot type: Plant comes in brown landscape pot (with drainage hole)

Soil for Potted Plants

Plants should be grown in fertilised potting mix. Make or buy a fertilised mix which consist of coco peat moss or coconut fiber (coir), vermiculite or perlite, compost and other ingredients. A lightweight soil for potted plants needs to provide good drainage, hold moisture, and give roots room to grow.

Light Requirements

 All plants depend on light for their survival, and making sure your potted plants get the right amount of light is key to keeping them happy. For both indoor and outdoor containers, group plants with similar light requirements. Don't mix shade lovers with sun lovers in a single pot; one or both of them will be unhappy, depending on where you place the pot.
