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.

Richard | Editor-in-chief at Succulent City

Hey everyone! I’m Richard. Welcome to my blog, which is all about succulents, cacti, and a bit about air plants. Ten years back, in 2013, I began my journey with succulents. It started as a simple hobby, crafting and selling charming succulent-themed pins and decorations. But as time passed, my fascination with these remarkable plants grew, and I gained extensive knowledge about them. Therefore, Succulent City is the blog as you see it is now. Enjoy your visit and happly planting!
