Echinopsis Oxygona in a small terracotta pot, ready to join your collection! This makes a great gift. It's great for a windowsill or office that gets good light.
Produced by one of our favorite local growers, this is a very healthy, easy to grow cactus that does well both indoors and outdoors. They can tolerate neglect and overwatering quite well. This is a great plant for beginners, those who have had trouble growing plants in the past, or home owners who are not able to check in on their plants often.
We have yet to get ours to flower, but it can produce large funnel shaped flowers that are quite large (up to 20cm long and over 10cm diameter) in comparison to the size of the cactus.
Echinopsis Oxygona is native to Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay, but has been popular with collectors for many years.

When the soil is completely dry, about once every 2 weeks. The cactus will show signs of puckering when underwatered, but will quickly rebound once watered. The cactus will seem plump and full when it is has sufficient water.
Lightly when the cactus is actively growing.
