Echinocereus Roemeri goes by the common name “Cereus Coccineus”. This succulent is clump shaped and grows semi-erect stems. The plant originates in the Southern US and belongs to the family of Cactaceae. Cereus coccineus goes dormant in the cold season. It can grow up to a height of 16 inches.

Growth Rate

Even though Echinocereus Roemeri grows at a fairly slow pace, the final look of the plant and its vibrant flowers is worth the wait.

Flowering

The colors of the flowers range from orange, scarlet, and pink to deep crimson shades. Its blooming season is spring. 

Watering and Feeding

Echinocereus Roemeri is sensitive to overwatering as it is rot-prone. No matter what time of the year it is, maintain dry soil and water it slightly. The plant enjoys a stable diet of light fertilizer. 

Soil

The succulent does not respond well to wet soil. Create a soil mix that is porous and slightly acidic to let them nurture to their fullest.

Hardiness

Cereus coccineus grows best in the spring season. The frost tolerance temperatures range from -6.7° C (20° F) to 10° C (50° F). Furthermore, it's hardy in zones 9a to 11b.

Light

The succulent needs at least 6 hours of direct sunlight on most days of the week to grow fully. A window that gets direct sunlight at your home is a perfect place. Echinocereus Roemeri can survive in shade but can cause the flowers to rot. 

Propagation

Cereus coccineus can be propagated from seeds or cuttings. Since the plant branches form the base, cuttings are highly preferred and easy to implement.

Apart from being an ideal choice when it comes to growing houseplants, Echinocereus Roemeri also has medicinal benefits, particularly as a heart stimulant.
