Commonly called Golden Barrel, these were nearly wiped out in habitat in the states of Querétaro and Hidalgo when the Zimapan Dam was built, flooding the Rio Moctezuma valley where they once grew. Fortunately the authorities in Mexico relocated the plants that were destined to be submerged by placing them in various Botanic Gardens in Mexico. Another population was discovered somewhere in Zacatecas. These large barrel cacti have beautiful golden yellow spines and attain their best appearance when grown in full sun.
