Echinopsis subdenudata cv. ‘Fuzzy Navel’ | ‘Domino Cactus’, ‘Easter Lily Cactus’, ‘Night Blooming Hedgehog’ | Live plant

(syn. Echinopsis ancistrophora cv. ‘Fuzzy Navel’)

Here’s another excellent nursery-produced cultivar – Echinopsis subdenudata cv. ‘Fuzzy Navel’, available from this website as healthy, seed-grown plants.

Echinopsis subdenudata cv. ‘Fuzzy Navel’ is an attractive form of this minimally-spined, globular green cactus species. Noticeable differences from the standard species type include that this popular cultivar has rather large and fluffly areoles in comparison (leading to its name) and a tendency toward slightly pinker flowers than the usual white to whitish. Another Echinopsis species which is native to Bolivia, subdenudata grows in its preferred natural habitat at between six-hundred and one-thousand-eight-hundred metres above sea level, and is synonymous with Echinopsis ancistrophora (under which alias it was awarded the British Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit).

Commonly called by names including the ‘Domino Cactus’, ‘Easter Lily Cactus’ and the ‘Night Blooming Hedgehog’, Echinopsis subdenudata is prefers a well-drained, slightly acidic soil mix in which to grow (we use roughly equal parts soil and perlite to cultivate our own plants). It doesn’t tolerate frost (and is generally a little more sensitive than the standard species type), enjoying bright but indirect sunlight in hotter locations. Water only when the top few centimetres of soil dry out completely to the touch. We fertilise ours two or three times each year also.
