  • 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.
  • Light: Full sun. but might need partial shade in hot, dry summer.
    Soil: Porous and well-draining potting mix.
    Water: Water deeply only when soil is dry and let it drain completely. Reduce watering during winter.
    Fertilizer: Feed once a year during growing season.

4" + clay pot

Got this as a gift for my sister - she's wanted a peanut cactus for awhile now and Christmas was the perfect opportunity. Cactus and pot were both thoroughly bubbled wrapped, and the heat pack was also wrapped in a scrap paper. (which is smart since those things leak sometimes haha) Was happy to find it came with soil to pot with. Overall I'm satisfied and will be likely to order from here again.

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.

Etsy Review by Amanda Fretwell

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.
