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".

Cute Cactus!

Arrived in good condition. Makes a nice addition to my collection of cacti. Anxious for it to grow, love the shape of cactus.

It was a gift, the receiver told me that the plant was pretty smashed when he got it, but it was still alive and I believe he was able to doctor it back to health. Definitely a cute idea, but one should definitely consider the fact that shipping may make it less ���******�۝ than the ad suggests.

The plant arrived quickly. It was smaller than expected when it first arrived, but within three days, the cactus had grown 2 inches. He was definitely a grower, not a shower ;-) I loved this cactus as he is super easy to take care of and is a great conversation starter. I have already recommended this to multiple friends!
