Echinocereus rayonesensis

Echinocereus rayonesensis is another Mexican Echinocereus from Nuevo Leon state, valley of Rayones.
It is an interesting plant, it's stems are densely covered with white needle-like spines. Plant forms clumps, branching by underground stolons.
Nice pink flowers come in spring, and easily produced once the flowering size is reached. The plant has to be larger than most Echinocerei to bloom. Usually first flowers are seen on well developed plant with 3-4 stems.
Because of it's habit of forming underground stolons this plant better kept in larger and shallow pots. The plant pictured is growing in broad 21sm/ 8  inches in diameter clay planter.
