Echinocereus rigidissimus var. 'rubispinus'
This unusual little spiny globose cactus is native to southwestern U.S.A and parts of northwestern Mexico. We don't get much of these often so it's a treat getting to share these with all of you. It's mainly known for its beautiful pink spines it produces and hot pink flower. The spines face inward on itself and you can actually touch this cactus without poking yourself. The stronger light intensity you give it the more pink the spines will become as it ages.
Water every 12 days during the hot summers and every 3-4 weeks *In winter*. Provide strong direct sun or bright filter light. With strong sun the plant will become a higher color intensity of pink.
