Echinocereus scopulorum

Echinocereus scopulorum is yet another Echinocereus with brilliant flowers and easy in pot culture. This species comes from Sonora state. It has stems that are somewhat similar to Echinocerei from reichenbachii - pectinatus group, but easy to recognize by pink young spines. Flowers are about 3-4 inches across pink-white as in the picture. To flower plants need to reach about 4-5 inches in size.
Echinocereus scopulorum is easy in culture and similar to other 'traditional' Echinocerei in its requirements. Plenty of sun and warmth in the summer and dry cool winters are perfectly suitable for the plants.
The plant pictured is about 4 years old from seed.
