Echinopsis hybrid cv. ‘Windigo’ | Live plant

(syn. Echinopsis cv. Windigo, HBG 85203, ISI 2000-30, Schick 1227-62)

Echinopsis hybrid cv. ‘Windigo’ (synonymous with Echinopsis cv. Windigo and Echinopsis ‘Windigo’) is an absolutely entrancing crossbreed – developed by legendary hybridiser Robert Schick and first introduced by The International Succulent Institute (ISI). If anyone reading this knows this variety’s parentage, please do tell us!

‘Windigo’ is a columnar cactus which produces stems of up to nine centimetres or so diameter, smattered with spines which grow to a maximum of roughly two-point-seven centimetres. Its famously showy flowers grow to over seventeen centimetres / seven inches across, featuring an array of colours, ranging from bronze to orange to red to pink to purple.

Amazingly, between 1986 and 2004, Shick introduced a staggering one-hundred-and-twenty-eight named hybrids! For the flower fanatics, other Schick Echinopsis/Trichocereus hybrids include cv. Anastasia, cv. Beautiful Dreamer, cv. Candlelight, cv. Cassandra, cv. Coquette, cv. Crepe Crusader, cv. Daydream, cv. Don Juan, cv. Eclipse, cv. Eddie, cv. Edwardian Lady, cv. Elegant Lady, cv. Eroica, cv. Galaxy, cv. Gossamer, cv. Hot Lips, cv. Icarus, cv. Intrigue, cv. Jealousy, cv. Lochinvar, cv. Madame Pele, cv. Maria Piazza, cv. Maria Piazza f. cristata, cv. Monet, cv. Princess Anne, cv. Romance, cv. Samantha Smith, cv. Sierra Skyline, cv. Sorceress, cv. Spring Blush, cv. Spring Symphony, cv. Syncopation, cv. Temptress and cv. Träumerei.

Growing well in USDA Hardiness Zones eight to eleven, these plants are best spaced at least thirty centimetres apart, so that they have room to reach their mature size and form a healthy root system. They can be propagated via stem cutting, which – once rooted – can be planted in a well-drained, mildly acidic to mildly alkaline soil mix (we use up to fifty-percent perlite, or a similar material). water regularly during the growing season, but only once the top few centimetres of soil are dry to the touch. Lightly fertilise two or three times a year and watch out for sustained or otherwise intense periods of frost.
