3 Tips to grow your barrel cactus
Barrel cactus can be grown from seeds, they require less water than most cactus and definitely an attractive addition to your garden. Here's 3 tips to take care of them: 1. Shop at your local garden store for the soil that's ideal for growing barrel cactus, usually it's more sand and just a very small amount of top soil. 2. Water the cactus once a week during summer and every couple of weeks on regular months. Barrel cactus thrives on arid conditions. 3. If you get lucky the barrel cactus may produce a fruit when conditions are right. But usually expect to have some flower during spring.
