Easter Lily Cactus (Echinopsis oxygona) is a large genus of cacti native to South America, sometimes known as hedgehog cactus, sea-urchin cactus or Easter lily cactus.
Echinopsis oxygona is a cactus with solitary or offsetting, globose to elongate stem with 12 to 15 ribs, up to 30 cm tall and up to 25 cm in diameter.
The big funnel-form flowers are night-blooming, flagrant, pale or intense pink/violet or white in color, up to 20 cm long and up to 13 cm in diameter. The plant can tolerate summer temperatures of 30°C or greater. They also tolerate cold temperatures well during winter months.
Growing Easter Lily Cactus
- Echnopsis appreciate strong light during the growing season. Move plants outdoors if possible, but acclimate to direct sunlight slowly to prevent scorching.
- Allow the soil mix to become nearly dry between waterings, but then water thoroughly.
- Good drainage is essential, so never let the pots sit in water. Suspend watering in the winter, but mist occasionally. .
- A rich, fast-draining cactus mix is ideal, but it will grow in most soil, as long as it is well draining.
- During the growing season, you can fertilize with a cacti fertilizer mix, but it is not required. Suspend feeding during the dormant winter period.
- Repot as needed, preferably during the warm season. To repot a cacti, make sure the soil is dry before repotting, then gently remove the pot. Knock away the old soil from the roots, making sure to remove any rotted or dead roots in the process. Treat any cuts with a fungicide. Place the plant in its new pot and backfill with potting soil, spreading the roots out as you repot. Leave the plant dry for a week or so, then begin to water lightly to reduce the risk of root rot.
- Be careful when handling Echinopsis as they have stiff spines.
