Product Description

Echinocereus rigidissimus subspecies rubispinus, commonly known as the "Rainbow Hedgehog Cactus," is a striking and highly sought-after cactus species native to the southwestern United States and northern Mexico. This subspecies is known for its unique and vibrant coloration, which sets it apart from other Echinocereus species.

The Rainbow Hedgehog Cactus is a compact, cylindrical cactus that typically grows to a height of 6 to 12 inches (15 to 30 cm) with a similar diameter. What makes it exceptional is its dense covering of spines, which exhibit a remarkable range of colors. These spines can be found in shades of pink, purple, magenta, red, and even orange, creating a stunning and eye-catching display. The spines encircle the cactus stem, giving it a hedgehog-like appearance.

In addition to its colorful spines, Echinocereus rigidissimus subspecies rubispinus produces small, funnel-shaped flowers that are typically pink to magenta in color. These blooms appear in late spring to early summer, adding to the cactus's overall charm.

Cultivating this subspecies requires well-draining soil, ample sunlight, and minimal water, as it is adapted to thrive in arid and rocky desert environments. Its vibrant coloration and unique appearance make it a prized addition to collections of succulent and cactus enthusiasts, adding a touch of the rainbow to arid landscapes.
