Echinocereus X roetteri     5/15/22
I can't recommend the plant more strongly. Besides the virtues already described, there is another one. These plants are cold hardy. I keep mine outside, at 6400 feet, all year. Even though winters have almost become a joke in Northern New Mexico, the plants, before the joke, did just fine outside in the winter. This might be a logical extension of the fact that the two parents of the hybrid are cold-hardy, especially E. coccineus. But be careful generalizing in biology. Logic has no power over life.    (27/56)
