Ferocactus pilosus is a common species native to the Mexican states of Coahuila, Durango, Nuevo León, San Luis Potosí, Tamaulipas, and Zacatecas. Colloquially known as the Mexican Fire Barrel Cactus, it can be found primarily on rocky limestone hills in semi-desert conditions in a variety of soil types. Ferocactus pilosus is a clumping barrel/column cactus with distinct, thick red spines. It produces yellow and red flowers when in bloom and is regarded as a slow-growing yet hardy specimen for home cultivation.
Our botanists strive to source and produce high-quality specimens to enrich your mind as well as your ears. After many months in the field our team has returned with a diverse selection of sonic seedlings. Following a series of meticulous experiments in our research facility each seedling has been deemed safe for general propagation and cleared for release.
