Also known by the charming name of ‘Peanut Cactus,’ Echinopsis 'Rose Quartz' showcases large numbers of bright magenta blooms atop upright green stems. The clusters of spines down each rib of the plant can sometimes blush a rosy hue, adding to this specimen’s appeal. Reaching only 6 inches in height, ‘Rose Quartz’ is an exceptional variety for beginner growers, as it is particularly hardy to pests such as mealy bugs – making this cactus a low maintenance addition to the container arrangements and sunny windowsills of all succulent enthusiasts!
Like most cacti, ‘Rose Quartz’ requires plenty of bright light to achieve its maximum size, produce offsets, and flower amply. Beyond this, the chief component of its care involves replicating the drought conditions to which it has adapted – necessitating the use of a porous soil mixture within a well-draining pot, the provision of ample airflow, and a thorough but infrequent watering routine.
Expect copious blooms during the spring months, followed by a dormancy period during the heat of summer. In the wintertime, be sure to shield ‘Rose Quartz’ from frost, which could scar its stems or destroy nascent flower buds.

All plants are shipped bare-root with the exception of House Plants and Plant Club Subscription Boxes. House plants and succulents will ship from separate locations and may arrive at different times. Orders ship Monday-Friday each week. Please allow 1-3 business days for your order to be processed. We ship within the USA and its outlying territories ONLY. Read our full policy here.
Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
