Introduced into cultivation from Mexico, the Fish Hook Barrel cactus is distinguished by a large round or barrel shape that is covered with menacing spikes.  Unfortunately, the barrel cactus has been over-collected to the point of endangering their survival in the wild

The native Fishhook barrel, Ferocactus wislizenii, is common around the Southwest desert and produces large clusters of showy flowers either yellow, red or orange in color. A bright, many seeded pineapple like fruit follows the flower which birds and other desert wildlife eat. The thorns of the fishhook barrel can be treacherous especially around pets and bare hands.

Unlike the Echinocactus grusonii Golden Barrel that has bright yellow spines. (available on another page) Unlike some of the native barrels with their green color and strong fishhook broad thorns the golden barrels' thorns are more of a gentle curve. The Fish Hook with its unusual red spine coloring makes it a popular container plant or a point of interest in the garden.

Any desert soil with good drainage should be adequate or if its placed in a pot use a soil mix specifically formulated for cactus and succulents.

You can handle the cactus with heavy leather gloves or as I've do regularly with '99 Cent Store' tongs! Great tool to position just don't squeeze too hard to position and plant.

Like most cactus the barrel stores moisture in it's barrel or cylinder shape. In times of drought the cactus will gradually shrivel until the moisture is replenished from rain or human intervention. The slow growing barrel cactus need little water once established.


Hardiness:
USDA Zone 9a: to -6.6 ?C (20 ?F) to USDA Zone 11: above 4.5 ?C (40 ?F)

Full Sun Exposure


Danger:
Plant has spines or sharp edges!
Extreme Caution when handling grown plants
