Echinopsis chamaecereus

For sale by P.Kennedy

This grower is fairly sure of this plant identification.

I started my cactus collection with this "peanut cactus" 32 years ago! It is a delightful little cactus with soft friendly spines, and flowers readily once established. Best displayed in a bowl/hanging basket, due to its spreading/trailing habit.
