GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Echinopsis oxygona, the “Easter Lily Cactus”, is known for having gorgeous, night-blooming, pink flowers at the ends of long tubes often as large or larger than the whole plant, it is very popular.
  • The Echinopsis genus of cacti includes dozens of species from South America.
  • This group includes large columnar cactus that were formerly in the genus Trichocerceus, as well as the smaller day-flowering species that were previously classified in the Lobivia genus.
  • The large columnar cactus are beautiful, but they are generally far too large for indoor cultivation, so only the smaller day-flowering species are grown indoors and are now classified in the Echinopsis genus.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • A rich, fast-drainging cactus mix is ideal.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • During the growing season, fertilize with a cacti fertilizer mix.
  • Suspend feeding during the dormant winter period.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Like many cacti and succulents, the Echnopsis appreciate intense sun during the growing season.
  • Move plants outdoors if possible, but acclimate to direct sunlight slowly to prevent scorching.
  • In the winter, southern exposure is perfect.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Allow the soil mix to become nearly dry between watering, but then water thoroughly.
  • Immaculate drainage is essential, so never let the pots sit in water.
  • Suspend watering in the winter but mist occasionally.
