Ferocactus histrix is an awesome solitary plant that can grow to about about 36-40 inches tall by 20-30 inches in diameter. The plant has a medium green body color with about 20-40 or more ribs and is moderately covered by light yellow to yellow-brown spines. Bright lemon yellow flowers can appear on plants as little as 5 inches in diameter. The species is fairly widespread in central and east-central Mexico, being found in the states of Durango, Zacatecas, Aguascalientes, Jalisco, San Luis Potosi, Guanajuato, Queretaro, and Hidalgo. Young plants have proven hardy to at least the mid-teens and older plants should be able to tolerate even lower temperatures in the desert southwest.

  • We select and ship only the finest quality cactus, succulents, and plants. We pack them individually and carefully to ensure they arrive safely. Tolerable living conditions depend on a growing region’s climate and may not be suitable compared to the Southwest. Due to the risk factor involved when shipping living plants, as well as numerous factors outside of our control, we do not accept refunds or store credit at this time. However, we will provide you with documents and pictures that your plant left our facility healthy and vibrant. We are always available via email or over the phone to answer any questions regarding planting, growing, watering, etc., to ensure you have the knowledge and tools to have a great experience. We look forward to serving your cactus needs.
