Echinocereus PENTALOPHUS is best planted in a hanging planter, as it has thin long shoots.
This cactus grows strongly, gradually turning into a bush.
I really like its flowering. But so far my Echinocereus PENTALOPHUS has bloomed with one flower, since it is still young.
The fruits of Echinocereus PENTALOPHUS are green with white.
But my cactus didn't get fruit. After wilting, the flower fell away :-(
Echinoceruses love bright light throughout the year and prefer direct sunlight.
In winter, during the dormant period, a temperature of +10 to + 12 ° C is desirable.
If Echinocereus PENTALOPHUS is kept in winter at a temperature of about + 10-15 ° C, then its flowering will be more abundant.
At a temperature of + 8 ° C dry content.
Echinocereus PENTALOPHUS does not like abundant watering.
Echinocereus seeds have the advantage of being viable for up to 8-10 years.
Seeds germinate best at temperatures from +25 to + 35 ° C.
