Where it grows
Echinocereus knippelianus is indigenous to mountainous areas of Mexico, specifically to the Sierra Madre Oriental mountains.
This is the variegated form of Echinocereus knippelianus. It has a gray-green stem with attractive yellow variegation. It has a relatively soft to the touch stem.
Echinocereus knippelianus prefers full morning sun, or light shade. To enhance its colour, expose it to more light. This is a relatively easy species to take care of, as long as it has good soil. A 1:1:1 mix of Ibaraki Akadama:Hyuga Pumice:Perlite is recommended. It is highly important to only water these plants in spring and summer, as doing so in winter will easily cause stem rot.
Spring and summer.
