Lobivia arachnacantha 'Hedgehog Cactus' + Wave Planter 13cm


BOTANICAL NAME_ Lobivia arachnacantha (native to South America), more recently renamed Echinopsis

AKA_ Hedgehog Cactus, Sea Urchin Cactus

FEATURES_  Dark chocolate in colour, the ‘arachnacantha’ variety is from the Greek words for ‘spider web shaped thorns”. Compact clustering cactus with short, dense, recurved spines resembling scorpions. Numerous offsets are produced to create a low clumping cactus with rusty coloured spines. Large, showy 6cm flowers appear enmasse in warmer months. The tight knit spines create a spider web of uniformity.

PLANT PERSONALITY_  Scorpios. Passionate, Dominating, Sexual, Defensive, Ardent, Transformative. One of the most important spiritual meanings that scorpions convey is that of isolation. They are quite solitary creatures by nature, only interacting with others sporadically and on rare occasions. The perfect isolation succulent. Great beginner cactus, easy to grow.



Cement planters are 13cm w x 13cm h using a quality compost-perlite-sand mix that is top dressed with small river pebbles.

Cacti prefer to completely dry out between waterings. Water the soil deeply so that water runs through the drainage hole and hits the roots for uptake to stem. They require a very sunny spot indoors or a covered position outdoors with full sun or partial shade. Cacti are generally winter dormant so keep dry and warm in winter in a bright, warm spot in a window and water sparingly, if at all, outdoors over winter. Lightly fertilizer (1/4 to 1/2 strength of normal plants) during the spring-summer growing season for best results.
