Echinopsis pentlandii (syn. Lobivia aculeata)

  • A species of hedgehog cactus with large (3-4 inch) flowers in spring.
  • Blooms are variable, but usually a deep purple-red colour; a given plant will always bloom the same colour.
  • Very dwarf, clumping, rounded stems; excellent for a sunny windowsill.


  • Light: Very bright with as much direct sun as possible (west or south window).
  • Water: Water when the soil has completely dried out in spring and summer. In winter, water lightly only if the stems begin to shrivel.
  • Fertilizer: Use Schultz Cactus Food (2-7-7) up to twice monthly in spring and summer.
  • Other tips: Grows best in an undersized pot. Use sharply-drained potting mix; we recommend Pro-Mix Cactus & Succulent Mix with extra perlite and small Orchiata added. This plant rots very easily when overwatered.
