Endemic to Argentina.
Chamaelobivia 'rose quartz' (Echinopsis chamaecereus) require plenty of full sun. 3-5 hours of direct sunlight a day is ideal, especially to get them to bloom.
Echinopsis chamaecereu should be allowed to dry between waterings but do not leave dry for too long. During the grow season and when the soil is completely dry, water them thoroughly, fully saturating the soil. If you are unsure whether or not the soil is dry, wait a few days before watering. Excessive moisture can quickly lead to root rot.
Easy to propagate by cuttings. To encourage blooms, keep dry during the winter and expose to a bit of cold. Fertilize: Echinopsis chamaecereu do not require fertilization, however a boost of nutrients during the growing season will help them thrive. Use a fertilizer formulated specifically for cacti and succulents, once a month, during spring and summer only.
Approx. 3-4" tall and 4-6" at the widest point. Every plant will vary in size, color and shape.
