This variety of echinopsis forms large low clusters of soft rubbery textured red-chocholate crested stems, only a few centimeters across and plant looks more like some non-cactus succulent than a cactus. Rarely a spine or a hair. This cultivar shows many growing variations with different crested and monstrous shapes.
This cactus tends to grow more easily grafted, however in quite long periods it is also able to develop on its own roots.
Water and Feeding/Fertilizer
Water regularly from Spring to Autumn, but do not overwater, keep well ventilated as it is prone to root rot.
Echnopsis cacti appreciate intense sun during the growing season. Move plants outdoors if possible, but acclimate to direct sunlight slowly to prevent scorching.
Reproduction is usually by grafting, or cutting, since the plant offset abundantly.
