HILDEWINTERA HYBRIDS:  Hildewimtera aureispina (now renamed Cleistocactus winterii) is an old species that can be hybridized with various cactus of several different genus (Among them: Echinopsis, Lobivia, Matucana, etc) giving rise to some intergeneric hybrids.
Hildewintera hybrid develops really amazing flowers of different colours on the original pendulous "hildewintera" body and many of these hybrids have cultivar names. This plants form soon spectacular clumps with several flowers at a time and are quite a sight.
They are often thicker, stronger, larger growing than H. aureispina and tend not to have the typical thin stemmed offsets. The offsets produced are more strongly attached to the main stems.
 


Propagation:
Easy to propagate from offsets. The offsets can be detached and planted immediately as they root easily with no assistance when they touch the ground. Just let them lay on the soil and you have a new start.
Cultivation:
This is an easily grown cactus, suited to hanging baskets as well as pots. Grow in well-drained soil in a sunny spot. This Echinopsis needs a period of cool rest in winter to produce flowers abundantly. It flowers freely indoors if conditions suit it. The plant survives outside without protection in winter (cold hardy to -8 ) but is then somewhat prone to rot, too.
Needs moderate water in summer, none in winter. Watch for infestations of mealybug, scale insects and spider mite.
