Echinocactus electracanthus is a barrel-like cactus plant in the family Cactaceae. E. electricanthus is commonly called the electric cactus or yellow-flowered hedgehog cactus and is native to Mexico. E. electricanthus is a small to medium-sized plant that typically grows up to about 1 to 2 feet in height and has a diameter of around 6 to 8 inches. It has a globular growth habit and is covered in bright yellow spines, giving the cactus its common name. E. electracanthus produces large, yellow flowers that bloom in the summer. Echinocactus electracanthus is often grown as an ornamental plant due to its attractive appearance and drought-tolerant nature. It requires well-draining soil and full sun to partial shade to thrive. It is a drought-tolerant species and can tolerate a wide range of temperatures. Allow the soil to completely dry out in between waterings. USDA plant hardiness zones 9a to 11b.

Echinocactus electracanthus seeds require consistent moisture and humidity to germinate, but the soil should not remain soaking wet. Cloning boxes, ziplock bags, and other containers that retain humidity are ideal to store sown pots. Use a well-draining sterilized soil mix. Seeds should be sown directly on top of the potting mixture and lightly covered with a thin layer of sand or potting mix, just enough to cover the seeds. Germinating pots should be kept indoors, out of extreme light and heat. Ideal germination temperatures range from 75°F to 85°F. Germination typically takes 1 to 3 weeks to occur. Even with optimal conditions, germination may be slow and sporadic.
