Availability: Out of stock

Ferocactus Schwarzii slowly grows into a barrel shape cactus that has distinct ribs with small spines. The flower can be yellow in color when it reaches mature size. Use very draining soil and water during the growing season. But allowed to dry before watering again and also kept drier in Winter. Take note:  it’s necessary to avoid wetting the bodies of these plants while they are in sunlight. A wet cactus in the sunlight can cause sun burning which can lead to many problems. Ferocactus Schwarzii needs a bright exposure, and part shade in summer.

Also known as Schwarz’s Barrel Cactus,


Australian Desert Blooms Nursery is producing many more cacti, cactus, and succulents for you to buy online. If anytime this cactus is out of stock know for sure that it will be back as quickly as possible. As we produce all our own stock here in Ipswich near Brisbane.


Watch your Ferocactus Schwarzii for the first couple of months to check if they are happy where they are.

Ferocactus Schwarzii requires more sunlight if it looks like growing out of shape. Burning is a common fact when having new plants. Best to gradually give them more sunlight as the weeks go by. Instead of placing it in straight sunlight.

Allow them to sit for a week before giving them a good drink. Depending on the season. Make sure they dry out completely before watering again. Don’t forget to give them a spray with soapy water to keep the bugs off them. And provide very good ventilation.
