  • The spunyes are straight and not hooked. Only 2-3 spines are hooked. – 4-K Mar 9 at 19:28
  • Can OP describe the growing conditions? Is this an indoor plant? How much direct sun does it get? Has it ever been fertilized? I didn't think Ferocactus because of the columnar habit shown rather than the normal depressed globose form. New spines showing pink, red, white coloration is not an unusual event in cactus. This "sort of "looks like a few different species. – Tim Nevins Mar 9 at 21:11
  • @TimNevins Is it Coville's barrel Cactus? – 4-K Mar 13 at 13:15
