Echinopsis Cacti On Succulent City

Echinopsis Genus Image

Echinopsis cactus is for prickly cacti lovers. This excellent Echinopsis cactus plant has its origin in South America. The plant is sometimes called the hedgehog cactus, Easter lily cactus, or sea urchin cactus. By now, you might have understood that the Echinopsis genus is a spiky or prickly appearance that gives it its nicknames. It is a plant that is densely covered with spines.

The Echinopsis represents a genus that is one of the biggest, with 128 species. The genus is home to plant species of different sizes. There are large-sized plant species and small-sized species too.

What is expected in all of these plants is the beautiful flowers present in each. The giant flowers (4-6 inches) are often multicolored with a beautiful blend. The colors and types of flowers can vary from the original Echinopsis thanks to the extensive hybridizing done on the plants.

Did you know that, unlike most cacti that produce a single flush of flowers annually, Echinopsis plants produce blooms of flowers as long as the temperatures during the day hit 21 degrees Celsius?
