Golden Barrel Cactus
Barrel cacti, as the name implies, are almost perfectly round when juvenile, so they make excellent display plants. They are highly attractive, with the evenly spaced rows or spines on their deeply ribbed lobes. As they grow, it's not uncommon for them to stretch out so they are more oval than circular. As with most cacti, the secret to successful indoor growth is nearly perfect drainage, as opposed to letting them dry out.
• Light: Bright indirect to direct light.
• Water: Infrequently, every month or two!
