Echinocereus Genus Image

Echinocereus is a genus of ribbed and trim to medium-sized cacti. It is native to the Southern United States and Mexico. Echinocereus plants prefer extremely sunny and rocky environments. The genus’ name comes from the Greek word “echinos,” meaning “porcupine” or “hedgehog,” and the Latin word “cereus,” meaning “large wax candle.” Echinocereus means “spiny cereus”. A unique characteristic of this genus is that almost all of its plants are tiny that might not even grow appropriately in pots. Typically, Echinocereus plants will only grow below a foot. Currently, it has seventy species.
