Echinopsis chamaecereus aka Peanut Cactus is native to Argentina and is a branched cactus with many crowded pale green finger-like stems. Stems are up to 6 inches  long and up to 0.5 inches (1.2 cm) in diameter. They have 8 to 10 ribs and 10 to 15 soft white bristles per areole. Flowers are orange-red or fusia and up to 2 inches in diameter. Several flushes of flowers appear from late spring to early summer.

It needs a well-draining potting mix. Water the plant thoroughly until water comes through the pot’s holes and let the soil dry before watering again. In winter, decrease or withhold water. The plant will look shriveled, and stems can take on a reddish tinge, but the Peanut Cactus will plump up again and return to its normal color in spring.

This cactus grows well in hanging baskets or shallower, 4-inch nursery containers because it is shallow-rooted. Hybrids can take deeper pots. It is difficult to transplant older clumps because the stems break apart so easily. Full sun to partial shade. In areas with cool summers or temperate climates, grow it in full sun.

The division I’m offering here is a clumping type shown in 3″ pot . Plants available are rooted divisions. Plant will ship bare root. Will refund some of the shipping cost when placing an order for 2 or more plants. All my plants are healthy and pest free. I ship USPS  priority mail 2-5 business days. All purchases on or after Wednesday will ship the following Monday to avoid plants spending the weekend at the post office. Not responsible for frozen plants or delays from postal service, that’s out of my hands. If you require a heat pack, I have some for sale, check under my other listings. I’m not making any money on these, I have them there for YOUR convenience. They are priced at $6 that’s to cover my cost. If you purchase a heat pack send me a message and let me know is for your order. For orders cancelled or refunded  72 hours after being placed, there will be a $5  charge (deducted from total refund) to cover restocking and Stripe’s processing fee.
