3. Create a mini landscape in a container. Containers are great places to incorporate this globular cactus and other succulents in close proximity. Flank an entry with a pair of containers or use one or more to decorate a courtyard or patio. Plant the golden barrel along with a columnar cactus, such as a young totem pole cactus (Pachycereus schottii var. monstrosus, Zone 9), and a small agave, like black-spined agave (Agave macroacantha, Zone 9), as shown here.Succulents in Containers: The Ultimate Easy-Care Mini Garden
