Echinopsis cv. Haku-Jo.
This Japanese cultivar is really different and original, it has a characteristic white tomentose line that connect the areoles one to each other.
The woolly areoles on the ribs have a felty line between them so it seems like the areoles are connected with each other. It is thought that this interesting cultivar is a chimaeric plant composed of two genetically different strata of cells. This meristematic mutation originated probably from a normal Echinopsis. The flowers like most other Echinopsis hybrid are long trumpet shaped white and scented. This plant can grow quite fast.
The flowers are a vary pale vanilla yellow and shented.
Cultivation: It is a fairly easy plant to. During the summer it is best to keep the plants outside where the temperature can rise to over 30 C with no harm to the plantThey like only a short winter's rest and should be kept almost completely dry during the winter months.
