How do I grow California Barrel Cactus or similar angiosperms?


Answer by  BrendaG (6111)

Choose correct container size for your plant. Purchase cactus mix with perlite and mix with sand and some garden soil. Place in a south window, preferably partial sun. Fertilize every few months with low nitrogen fertilizer during growing season. Water when the soil feels dry approximately one inch below top.

Large Barrel Cactus plant should be grown in a large container. Plant with cactus mix with perlite in a 1 to 1 ratio. Place cactus in south window with sun to partial shade. Water when dry 1" down. Fertilize every 4 months with low nitrogen fertilizer.

Cactus are all basically the same to grow. They need partial sunlight, and not too much water and fuss. Many peoples problems are that they mess with them too much, basically make sure that they are happy, then leave them alone!

California Barrel Cactus thrive in a moist warm environment, contrary to other cacti that like dry habitats. The difficulty with them is that you have to make them think that they are still in California. The solution for this is to arrange large calenders with photos of the Mojave desert around the cactus plants.

The key is to use the correct soil. You will need to get special cactus soil from your local garden store.

Barrel Cactus can be grown by getting the healthy Barrel Cactus or seeds from nursery, planting it in a container by keeping it in sun light.
