Echinopsis cinnabarina

Echinopsis cinnabarina | Also known as: Lobivia cinnbarina | Rating: 0 votes | Print / Pdf

Small and globular, echinopsis cinnabarina is a popular option for conservatories and greenhouses but like so many of that genus, its floral display is magnificent. Almost a perfect globe, its stem is mid-green in colour. It has no ribs but tubericles that are slightly brown, each with areoles of multiple spines. It produces more than one blossom when flowering, trumpet-shaped heads with multiple rich-red tepals, and a pale yellow throat. Commonly called by its botanical name, it is happiest in hot climates, so it is best to grow it under glass. Use cactus compost in their containers, and be sure to water regularly in summer, and rarely in winter
