Flower colour & season
DescriptionThe echinocereus (echinocereus) genus contains around 70 cacti species that come in various sizes and shapes. In general, these Hedgehog Cactus tend to be small, not typically reaching more than 1 foot tall. Hedgehog Cactus often have a cylindrical shape and tight spines. These cacti bloom mostly in the spring with colorful, showy flowers, though they occasionally bloom at different points in the year as well. Echinocereus cacti generally like sunny, warm climates, but certain species have some cold tolerance. Overall, they are quite hardy plants and good for beginners to grow both in the garden (in the proper climate) and as houseplants. The cacti tend to live for many years and have a slow growth rate. They are best planted in the spring once the weather has warmed. .These cacti need full sun, meaning at least six hours of direct sunlight on most days, to grow and flower their best. They can tolerate a bit of shade, but this can reduce flowering. When grown as a houseplant, place your echinocereus cactus by your brightest window. A west-facing window is best.Loose, sandy soil with sharp drainage is recommended for echinocereus cacti. Temperature preferences vary among echinocereus species. Many of the cacti are quite tolerant to cold and even freezing temperatures.
