Size

Echinopsis Chamaecereus Luisramirezii can be found in Argentina and Bolivia. They differ from the other chamaecereus peanut cacti due to their thinner and longer stems. Their spines are adpressed, soft, bristle-like, and white and they radiate.
They are fairly easy to grow and suited for hanging baskets and their stems will be long as they mature. Chamaecereus grow in well-drained soil in a sunny spot. Ensure they receive moderate water in the summer months. Peanut cacti do need the winter rest to produce an abundance of beautiful orange flowers in the summer, so cut back on the water during the cool months.
