A circular cactus with bright yellow spines, the Golden Barrel Cactus is an extremely easy-care plant. Growing fairly slowly indoors, this cactus is great for those who don’t have much time to dedicate to plant care.

Native to the hot, dry desert climate of central Mexico, this cactus thrives in warm, sunny windowsills. If grown in bright direct sunlight, the Golden Barrel Cactus can produce small yellow flowers; however, this is uncommon when grown indoors.

Unlike buying a plant from a box store, your Bloomscape plant arrives fully-grown as pictured and pre-potted. We’ve spent a lot of time selecting pots that have optimal drainage, look great, and come with a saucer so your floor or desk won’t get ruined. All you have to do is unpack your plant and find the perfect spot for it in your home.

Fully Grown & Healthy

Fully Grown + Healthy

Most of the time when you buy houseplants, they are partially grown and kept in less than ideal conditions. With Bloomscape, our houseplants are grown and cared for in our greenhouses by plant experts until the day we ship them to you. That way, your plants arrive fully-grown, healthy, and ready for you to enjoy.
