Ferocactus schwarzii Family: Cactaceae. This is an unusual species of Ferocactus in that it starts out with the dense stout spines you expect from this genus but the older and larger it gets the less spines it has. Or more properly the smaller the spines get until it looks almost spineless in some mature specimens. Like most Ferocactus it can be a landscape specimen if grown in grown in the appropriate climate but does just fine in a pot in other places. Flowers are bright yellow. Takes normal cactus care. Can take light frost but is at risk in a hard frost.
You will receive a plant shown in the fourth image or one similar. Plants shown in a 4" pot. Last image shows a mature plant.
Important Shipping Information
- PLANTS ARE SHIPPED BARE ROOT If you want me to send them in pots send me a message to discuss. Extra charges due to increased shipping costs will apply.
- Immediate Payment (eBay only) Sorry! I can no longer offer a delayed purchase option as the multichannel inventory management system I have started using requires this setting.
- No Delayed Shipping (eBay only) Once you pay I have to (and WILL) ship within 3 business days or eBay will lower my seller rating. I used to have a way to delay shipping but can no longer do this for the same reason as #2 above. Feel free to message me before buying to see if we can figure something out here, no promises though.
- Winter Shipping If you live in a cold climate consider including a 96 hour heat pack in your order during the cold months. I have them as a listing. Just add it to your order. If you don’t see them just message me.
