The Barrel Cactus is an adorable green orb that adds instant charm to a space. The entire surface of the cactus is covered with evenly-spaced spines that help protect the plant in nature, but also give the sactus its characteristic look. Be extremely careful as the spines are sharp! Cactus have a well deserved reputation as being an easy-care plant and the Cactus Barrel completely lives up to that distinction. This houseplant likes a sunny spot and it prefers to dry out between watering. Cactaceae are ideal plants for forgetful waters and they are some of the best indoor plants for beginners. The sharp spines of the Cactaceae can pierce skin, so be very careful when handling the plant, or if you have pets and/or small children.
