We remove some of the soil when we ship. There are usually no issues with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. When you receive your plants, put them into a pot with moist soil. Give the roots opportunity to reachdown for water. Please check to see if your plants should be watered at the time of year you purchase. Some don't get a lot of water in winter and some not a lot of water in summer. How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater. Water well and allow your plants to dry out. The photos on our website represent what plants look like when growing. We are not selling the plant in the photo. Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.
Echinocereus viridiflorus var. canus is a remarkable white-spined variety closely related to Echinocereus viridiflorus subs. chloranthus. It is one of the few green-flowered cacti, and usually produces solitary stems covered with mostly white spines and its shaggy appearance resulting from spreading central spines. The juvenile stage, with long, white, hair-like spines in horizontal bands around the stem, is considered characteristic. Echinocereus viridiflorus var. canus is endemic to the Solitario, Sandstone ridge above Righthand Shutup, Presidio Co., Texas, USA. Altitude range is elevations of 1,300-1,600 metres above sea level. This cactus grows on steep slopes and ridge crests on sandstone and exposed Caballos Novaculite; also on chest and igneous rock.
