Echinocactus comes from the Greek word “echinos,” meaning “hedgehog,” and “kaktos,” meaning “thistle.” It is native to North and South America and currently has six species. Initially, hundreds of species were classified under the Echinocactus genus. However, as the cactus taxonomy improved, most species were regrouped. Regarding physical appearance, Echinocactus plants have relatively more little flowers, heavy spines, and wooly fruits. This genus is easy to grow and famous for a houseplant or landscaped garden.
