Ferocactus glaucescens

24th October 2015

One of the smaller species of Ferocactus, it makes an cushion just big enough to sit on in time and I imagine the spines are an essential protection from fatigued cactophiles haunting the northern limestone slopes of Hidalgo in Mexico.
Lovely thing, just right for a pot, really hates cold weather. This one was quite badly damaged in its second year and may not be worth nurturing for much longer.
