Chamaelobivia Hardy Red Peanut Cactus 13cm Pot
Item number PC7A4
Chamaelobivia Hardy Red Peanut Cactus 13cm PotA hybrid cactus of the Echinopsis family, Chamaelobivia is a clumping, hardy cactus that produces a profusion of large, bright red blooms in early summer. Also known as the peanut cactus due to the appearance of its offsets, it¿s a great indoor plant and will also overwinter outside in the UK with little more protection than a cold greenhouse. Chamaelobivia is a tough, hardy 'garden' cactus that will sit happily in drier areas inside and out. Easy to care for and a real eye-catcher, if you don't have a garden you can grow this cactus perfectly well as an indoor houseplant. Able to withstand temperatures down to -7°C when kept dry, this is a really robust little houseplant that will tolerate most conditions that are thrown at it. This popular cactus has surprisingly large, brightly coloured, flowers which can grow up to 7.5 cm wide. It has an upright growth habit and produces multiple offsets which will bloom profusely. Place Chamaelobivia outside in your rock or gravel garden directly in the ground or in a pot on your balcony - it's so easy to grow that it¿s even great for kids to get their first taste of gardening. Supplied as a single red flowered plant in a 13cm pot. Flowers May - June.
