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.

Amazing cactus. Great Mother's Day Gift

I bought 4 cacti from this website for Mother's Day gifts for my mom and 3 "grandmas" as an alternative to flowers. It went over great with everyone (except for the fact that I forgot to get one for my aunt), and the cacti all looked spectacular! Great packaging—I feel like the plants could've survived the laziest, clumsiest USPS person in the world. I will absolutely be purchasing from here again (and actually already have). This particular one was for my mom. I found a black spot on it on Mother's Day unfortunately (I'm fairly certain this was my fault—I'm brand new to cacti and was learning how to properly repot and water on the fly), but I chopped out the diseased segment and am propagating the remaining 4 healthy cuttings. Came with buds on it and had an absolutely STUNNING flower recently.

A peanut that flowered.

I really enjoyed this cactus just in time for mother's day, the cactus bloomed for three days. With two blossoms my wife was so happy didn't expect it. Can't wait for more peanuts to pop out.

2 very healthy-looking pieces. Very much appreciate the name tag in each pot. Can't wait to try my hand at this cactus thing!
