Ferocactus covillei also known as Colville's or Emory's barrel cactus is a solitary barrel cactus. The young specimens are columnar but as they age the ribs take on a barrel form.

Its suitable for a bright window sill due to the plant having very dense spines. The long arch sharp spines are an unusual reddish shade.

Ferocactus is slow growing but makes a great popular houseplant !

Ideal houseplant Very easy to grow

How to take care of Ferocactus covillei

Cactus Plants originate in areas of the USA and Mexico and are accustomed at dryness. Place the Ferocactus covillei on a light spot in the window and keep them at approx,16-18°C during the winter.

During spring and summer they can withstand a room temperature of about 20-25 degrees. Ferocactus covillei need direct sunlight and moderate watering during their growing season. Water once every month, from late February onwards (add a little bit of some liquid fertiliser) to boost them.

The flowering varieties of cactus plants will flower in spring.

ATTENTION: Ferocactus covillei do not like wet feet, so take care of good drainage as wet feet can lead to root rot! If and when you transplant, add broken pot shards or pebbles at the bottom of the pot to ensure extra drainage.
