Echinocereus viereckii (email for availability)

This cactus displays stunning vibrant magenta colored, glossy flowers. The cactus is almost spineless and a bright green that- with enough light- can turn a purplish color. It is quite the display, perfect to add to a collection or the garden!

Please email us with your zip code for availability.


The cactus may go yellow or shrivel in the Winter if kept dry, this is natural. With regular watering in Spring, it will perk right back up. It is extremely drought tolerant. Water once the soil has completely dried out or even a little after it’s dried completely. It grows in full sun and part shade, however if you want the stem to change colors to purple, it will need lots of light for that. Protect from freezing temperatures.
