More about Echinobivia hybrids
Rainbow Bursts are so named for their spectacular display of flowers during the spring and summer. Flowers can be to 5" in diameter, and appear in all shades of white, gold, yellow, orange, pink, red, vivid purple and sometimes even bicolors! These hybrids are crosses (combined genetics) of Echinopsis species and Lobivia species, hence the name Echinobivia. In this manner, the best characteristics of both genera are combined to create a robust, floriferous, easy-care plant. Bright light enhances flowering. Porous cactus soil with adequate drainage. Prefers bright light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Protect from frost.
