PLANT CARE ( Ferocactus )
|The minimum average temperature that Ferocactus tolerates is 50 F. (10 C.)|
|Choose a location that receives direct sun during all or most of the day. Because Ferocactus eventually leans into the sun instead of growing precisely upright.|
|Ferocactus does best in high temperatures and low humidity.|
|Water the cactus sparingly. Give it a good watering and let the soil become dry to the touch (stick your finger down into the soil) before watering again.|
Ferocactus species are usually solitary, growing with a single stem that’s why they can only be propagated through seeds. Flowering usually occurs when the plant is 2 to 3 years old, so seeds are not available until then. When planted, germination can take a week to 5 months, depending on external and internal factors. Reproducing Ferocactus takes perseverance but the resulting plant and blooms are definitely rewarding. When dealing with cactus, make sure to wear the proper protective equipment to avoid injury to yourself and the plant. Once in 2 or 3 years, it is recommended to repot a Ferocactus. This is to make sure that the soil remains airy and the roots are able to breathe. Indoor cacti being irrigated with tap water are prone to mineral build up in the soil over time so repotting avoids the harm in this deposit.

Eventually, the delivered plant may differ in for example size, the number of flowers & branches, The Plant Will be in a Plastic Pot Not The One Shown In The Picture.
