repotting Golden Barrel (Echinocactus grusonii)

Robert Sherman
July 8, 2018

I have a Golden Barrel cactus in a pot that needs to be repotted, however, i'd like to keep the pup attached, if possible. If not, what is the best way to separate it from the mother?

I originally bought it in 1983 in a 6" pot and now its only in its second pot since then.

I need to buy a good pair of welding gloves to handle this guy!

    Love to see a pic. I try to keep pups attached - a clump, which we hope will form eventually - is always more attractive, and valuable, than a collection of singletons.

    Could you go around it with a piece of masking or other painters' tape to secure it?
