Cactus Identification

Recommended Posts

Can't help with ID (even though I used to have some like it a few years ago) but is that mealy bugs I see or just light reflection?

Some sort of echinopsis species or hybrid, very easy to grow-give it lots of light an a cool winter and it will produce large flowers next year. (and yes, that does look like mealy bug!)

hi

your cactus is Echinopsis eyriesii and you have serious problems with mealy bugs. I recommend watering with a solution with Diazinon (3 ml in 1 L) once a week for 4 weeks

regards

Cheers,
