    Transform your space with the Peanut Cactus – a blend of elegance, resilience, and vibrant blooms. Add this unique cactus to your collection and watch it flourish with minimal effort. The peanut cactus (Echinopsis chamaecereus) is a branched cactus with finger-like stems that can grow up to six inches long. The stems are covered in small white bristles and are half an inch in diameter. The peanut cactus is native to Argentina and is sometimes called the chamaecereus cactus. It gets its name from the underground stems that resemble peanuts. The plant has a trailing growth habit, making it a great choice for hanging baskets.

    • Introducing the Peanut Cactus (Echinopsis chamaecereus), a captivating houseplant with finger-like stems that cluster and trail, reaching up to 6 inches in length and 0.5 inches in diameter. Adorned with soft, white bristles, its ribbed stems add an aesthetic touch to any space.
    • While resembling a prickly character, the Peanut Cactus surprises with soft spines, making it easier to handle and grow compared to spikier cacti. Its low-maintenance nature extends to indoor and outdoor settings, thriving as a houseplant and flourishing in frost-free climates outdoors.
    • Experience the beauty of red-orange blooms adorning healthy Peanut Cacti in late spring to early summer. Native to Argentina, this mountain-dwelling wonder adds a splash of color to your surroundings while maintaining a hassle-free care routine.
    • Peanut cacti prefer full sun, but can also tolerate partial shade. When grown outdoors, they should be planted in a full-sun location. They can thrive when given direct light or bright indirect sun. They need bright sunlight, great drainage, and infrequent water to prevent rot. Pick containers with drainage holes and use well-draining cactus and succulent soil with 50% to 70% mineral grit such as coarse sand, pumice, or perlite.
    • Plant in sandy, well-draining soil outdoors or opt for standard cactus potting soil indoors, preventing waterlogged roots. Embrace its drought-tolerant nature by allowing thorough soil dryness between waterings. Decrease watering during winter dormancy. Mimic its native habitat with exposure to cooler temperatures (32-45°F) in winter for optimal bud setting. While not a heavy feeder, monthly low-strength fertilization during the growing period enhances growth.

    "Came in perfect condition--thank you!"


    "Amazing Plants! I was so happy to see these way larger than the plants pictured because I know how slow most cycads grow."


    "This is the first time I've ever ordered plants online, so I had no idea what to expect. When I saw the description of 'comes in a 4" growers' pot' I figured I'd be getting some fairly small plants--nope! The bamboo palms were fully 2' tall from root to top leaf, and perfectly healthy. All 5 plants were VERY well secured in their box, to the point that the bottom layer was even spray-foamed to the cardboard! I couldn't ask for a better experience and I'm so excited to see these plants grow. Five stars!"


    "Thrilled with my purchase! This seller went above any beyond! The packaging was very careful, the plants are so much bigger than I expected, and I was given more than what was depicted in the item description. 10/10 all round!"


    "This is SO BEAUTIFUL! Packaging was perfect and efficient, plant was in excellent condition. I'm in love with this plant and I will definitely order more."
