  • This listing is for a cute Peanut cactus growing in a 2 inch or 4 inch size.

    Echinopsis chamaecereus is a branched cactus with crowded stems that resemble the shape of the fingers, up to 6 inches (10 cm) tall. It has pale green stems, up to 6 inches (15 cm) long and up to 0.5 inches (1.2 cm) in diameter. It has 8 to 10 ribs which have 10 to 15 soft and white bristles.

    Most people don't know that cactus can have orange & red blooms which are about 2 inches (5 cm) in diameter. Sometimes, they have a long branch and two smaller balls, therefore, we nickname it the "penis cactus".

    This plant is fragile therefore some small pieces could fall off during shipping. You can put the pieces back into soil to make baby plants.

    All of the plants may be shipped bare root.
  • Full sun. but might need partial shade in hot, dry summer.

    Porous and well-draining potting mix.

    Water deeply only when soil is dry and let it drain completely. Reduce watering during winter.

    Feed once a year during growing season.
  • Hardiness: 10a to 11b: from 30 °F (−1.1 °C) to 50 °F (+10 °C)
  • * We use 3.5 inch wide clay pots for 4" plant + clay pot option.
    Your plant will be carefully wrapped in a sturdy box. Most of the succulents will be shipped bare-root to ensure their safety. If you want to receive the plastic pot & soil, please leave a note in your order. When opening your package, some soil may be loose in the box.

    Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging: https://succulentsbox.com/pages/shipping-return-policy

    *** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.

I was surprised at how well the succulents where shipped. I know it's difficult but everything arrived well and I'm surprised how much my cactus has grown in such a short time. I had it outside for the summer and used a very low fertilizer once a month. For winter I'll be bringing it in and setting it under a grow light.
