Echinocereus triglochidiatus var. inermis

Synonyms:

  • Echinocereus coccineus var. inermis
  • Echinocereus phoeniceus var. inermis
  • Echinocereus phoeniceus f. inermis

Habitat:

-Echinocereus triglochidiatus var. inermis is a widely spread species: you can find it in Utah, Colorado, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas (USA) and in Mexico.

Description:

-Echinocereus triglochidiatus var. inermis is a spineless form of the wild plants with 1 to 7 spines; it is as widely common as the wild one. Peculiar of this plant is that the flower’s buds emerge throught the plant skin (and not from areoles or axils between areoles as in other plants), leaving a scar after blooming. The orange and red flowers have green stigma in the centre.

Cultivation:

-E. triglochidiatus var. inermis is a very easy plant to grow! Water in spring and summer, keep it dry in winter and provide good drainage to avoid rot. Spring flower production is maximized by dry and cool winter and strong sunlight all year long. Usually very cold resistant (some varieties resist temperatures down to -25°!)

Propagation:

-Propagate by seeds or cuttings.

Curiosity:

-This plant is called inermis refers to its lack of spines, even if that’s not entirely true (but almost).
