Echinopsis chamaecereus
Also known as The peanuts cactus, Echinopsis chamaecereus (probably best known under its old name Chamaecereus silvestrii), is a very popular cactus with many crowded finger-like stems. Established plants can reach a height of 15 cm and width of 30 (or more) cm.
Flowers: Orange-red about 5 cm in diameter, often produced in prolific quantities from an early age.Blooming season: In several flushes in late spring and early summer.
Cultivation and Propagation: This is an easily grown cactus, suited to hanging baskets as well as pots. Grow in well-drained soil in a sunny spot. This Echinopsis needs a period of cool rest in winter to produce flowers abundantly. It flowers freely indoors if conditions suit it. The plant survives outside without protection in winter (cold hardy to -8° ) but somewhat prone to rot, then, too.

Bigger than Expected

Fantastic choice with several offshoots that promise many years of beautiful blooms. An even bigger specimen that I had planned, so much so that I had to get a larger terra cotta pot for its new home!
