My Haku Jo survived this winter's brutal freeze in Tucson on an exterior window ledge with temperatures on three successive mornings of 14, 18 and 22 with no protection. It is still thriving.

I have to agree with Cacti_lover. Somewhat difficult to grow. But the offsets are easy to root and the plant offsets prolifically. So I keep on trying.

This echinopsis is a little bit more challenging to grow than most other echinopsis hybrids. Atleast for me anyway. It doesn't seem to like the extreme heat, bright full sun or the cold very much. The plant I have seems to live and grow, but hasn't flowered yet, thus I don't know the flower info. Hopefully it will grow better and bloom this spring. This hybris has rust color spine and very pronounced ribs. If grown well, it will produce a lot of pups.
