Q.

Why golden barrel cacti propagate pups

Zone Phoenix, AZ. Desert. | [email protected] added on October 24, 2015 | Answered

We have a number of 12-15 year old golden barrel cacti in our yard. Recently, some have begun to spawn pups and others have not. Is there a reason why some do and others don't?
