The Ferocactus histrix is ​​a beautiful ball cactus species that occurs in a large area in Mexico. Here this cactus grows in sandy and rocky plains and dry forest areas.

The Ferocactus histrix has a light green to blue-green color. This Ferocactus is not a fast grower. But can eventually grow to a height of 110 cm and a width of 50-60 cm. This will take her many decades. The Ferocactus histrix produces many sharp, long, thin thorns that grow sideways from its areoles. These spines have a red color on top of the cactus and a combination of yellow and red further down. The red color of the spines on top of the cactus becomes more intense when you give it a nice sunny spot.

The Ferocactus histrix will bloom with us at the end of the summer. The flowers appear on top of the cactus' head and are a bright yellow color. To promote flowering, it can help to give this cactus a really sunny place in the summer.
