Echinobivia 'Rainbow Bursts' An intergeneric hybrid of Echinopsis x Lobivia. This stunner of a cultivar is lined with ridges dotted with white spines. It produces piles of new offsets around its base which clump up nicely. It gets its name from the explosion of giant pink flowers that bloom each spring or summer. This plant is fully rooted in a 3.5" round plastic pot.
This cactus variety will not survive a hard frost, but if there is a risk of temperatures below 40F, it can be brought indoors to grow on a sunny window sill or under a grow light. Cactus need bright sunlight, great drainage, and infrequent water to prevent rot. Pick containers with drainage holes and use well-draining cactus and succulent soil with 70% to 80% mineral grit such as coarse sand, pumice, or perlite. Water deeply and wait for the soil to completely dry out before watering again.
Full sun to partial sun.
Attracts bees and butterflies.
