Description

An endangered cactus native to East-Central Mexico. This slow growing cactus, known as the Golden Barrel Cactus, is a popular landscaping feature due to it’s pale green barrel shape and prominent ribs adorned with golden spines. Growing as a large roughly spherical globe, E. grusonii may eventually reach over 1m in height after many years.

Common Name.
Mother-in-Law’s Seat; Giant Barrel Cactus; Large Barrel Cactus; Golden Ball.

Germination.
Best to use a container with drainage holes, takeaway containers work well with holes punctured in them. Layer with high quality potting mix and top layer with zeolite – layers of 2 cm each is fine. Sow seeds on top of the moist zeolite, do not cover seeds. Place this container into a sealed, larger clear container with water in its base. Prop up the seed container, so it isn’t sitting in the water. The humid environment you create with containers will keep the seeds moist from then on. Place lid on and do not remove. Do not water again until re-potting is needed. Removing the lid will destroy the humid environment you are trying to create.

Every seed packet is hand counted and is guaranteed to contain at least the number of seeds specified, however human error can occur and please don’t hesitate to contact us if there are any discrepancies.
To the best of our knowledge these seeds are viable to the standard percentage for it’s species, either SAB nursery grown or purchased from a reputable trusted breeder. However, if you disagree, please do not hesitate to contact us for up to date germination rates or for a germination test to be conducted.
