Golden barrel cactus

Golden barrel cactus
(Echinocactus grusonii)

from Mexico

Echinocactus grusonii, the golden barral cactus is native from the Mexican desert but is cultivated all over the world. It grows into a perfect spherical cactus ball of approx. 60cm in diameter, completely covered by golden needles. Together with the Saguarro cactus (Carnegiea gigantea) and the Barbary fig (Opuntia ficus-indica), the barrel cactus is probably one of the most famous cactus in the world.
