Barrel design and application suggestions:

Barrel cacti are very low maintenance and offer subtle beauty and interest. Our golden and red barrels offer great low maintenance color options for container gardeners or those looking to spruce up a landscape. A potted arrangement of cacti and succulents can always use a few barrel cacti for interest and contrast. In the landscape in suitable environments, barrel cacti look phenomenal in groupings. Barrel cacti will take relentless all day sun and moderate cold to the low twenties at night.

Why purchase our Barrel Cacti?

Our barrel cacti are grown in their native habitat right here in Southern Arizona. Raised outdoors with just the right amount of water and fertilizer, they come to you in their natural form. These plants do not come to you from a greenhouse. They are already hardy to whatever growing conditions you have to offer. Our barrel cacti present the same appearance as you will find them in their native habitats.

If you want to plant them in a container for a sunroom, patio or window planter, great! If you want to take your agaves and plant them in the ground, also great! No acclimation needed. Our plants are ready to go!

Just Awesome!

A called the customer service and they were so hopeful! I have about 20 of the golden barrel cactuses and i needed just 1 but because I have so many I needed a certain size. They actually found a size I needed and shipped it to me. The plant was packed perfectly and came to CA from AZ with no damages at all.

Thank you so much! I will be definitely shopping here again.

Fine Golden Barrel Cactus

Thanks for the quick shipping and great packaging of the Golden Barrel Cactus.
Purchased the proper soil for cactus & succulents, plus a glazed clay pot with attached saucer. Immediately planted it upon arrival, paying attention to the orientation knot marked south in drain area of pot. Located the new cactus in out climate controlled sun room on a short table in front of a sliding glass door. It gets plenty of direct sunlight and looks to be doing fine. Plan is to water once a month, so far it has only been watered when it was potted.
