Echinopsis oxygona cactus Care
Light- Like many cacti and succulents, the Echnopsis appreciate intense sun during the growing season. Move plants outdoors if possible, but acclimate to direct sunlight slowly to prevent scorching. In the winter, southern exposure is perfect.
Water- Allow the soil mix to become nearly dry between waterings, but then water thoroughly. Immaculate drainage is essential, so never let the pots sit in water. Suspend watering in the winter, but mist occasionally.
Soil- A rich, fast-draining cactus mix is ideal.
Temperature- It grows well in full sun, or light shade. These cacti can stand strong heat, and even temperatures as low as −10 °C (14 °F). Usually these are outdoor plants.
Fertilizer- During the growing season, fertilize with a cacti fertilizer mix. Suspend feeding during the dormant winter period.
