Echinocactus grusonni or "mother-in-law‘s cushion " is a popular cactus which belongs to the family of the cactaceaes.

The interest of this plant lies in its perfect hemispherical shape and its size, as it can reach nearly a meter in height and width.

Its strong thorns are between yellowish and reddish colour on a spherical greyish green spherical stem.

Very easy to maintain since it is drough tolerant, although this is not a reason for not watering it throughout the summer season, and with moderation during spring and autum.. Care must be taken for not watering the plant itself during the central hours of the day in summer, as it might be burned by the sun.

Provide special fertilizer for cacti to have a strong and healthy plant during spring and summer.

It has a aphemeral flowering of about 3 or 4 days, in a circular way around the top of the plant.

It can suffer from mealy bugs, a few good washes to pressure in continued way will help to get rid of this pest.

Keep echinocactus in a place with good ventilation and do not overwater. Use a special for cactus and succulents plants soil.
