Echinocereus Pulchellus var acanthosetus is a solitary or clumping cactus with flat globular bodies and short pale spines. The stems are hemispherical and up to 6 cm (but cultivated plants are frequently higher), 5-7cm in diameter, bluish-green when young.
The flowers are showy, pinkish-white to hot pink, up to 6 cm in diameter.
All of the plants will be shipped bare root.
It needs full sun exposure to light shade: direct sun for too long expose the plant to sunburn, but bright light encourages flowering.
Water moderately in the summer but keep the cactus completely dry. Avoid overwatering, this plant is very rot sensitive. Keep dry in winter.
Porous and well-drained cactus mix. Its taproot needs a deep pot to grow in, with good drainage.
It grows easily from seed or cutting.
USDA Hardiness Zones 8b to 11b: from 10 °F (-9.4 °C) to 50 °F (+10 °C).
Your plant will be meticulously bubblewrapped and shipped in a sturdy box. Most 2" plants
are shipped in their original plastic pot with soil. Fragile and big 4" plants are shipped bareroot to ensure their
safety. When opening your package, some soil may be loose in the box. Plant orders are shipped within 3-5 days
depending on availability of the plant. We ship our plants Monday through Friday, all twelve months of the year! If
you need your order urgently, please message us so we can upgrade your shipping (additional cost applied).

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.
