Red Torch Cactus


Echinopsis huascha from Argentina is a low clumping mounding cactus with lots of bright red flowers. Interestingly, as with so many other plants in the plant world, the colors vary naturally from one individual to another. Possibly because these were from seeds that were collected in different parts of Argentina, and possibly because they’re just naturally variable. In fact if we want we could keep these two separate, pull apart all those stems, and call these by cultivar names. Shall we try E. huascha “Red Devil” and E. huascha “Blood Feud”? Does that capture the fullness of the different red colors? Maybe not.
