Echinocereus marksianus, commonly known as Mark’s hedgdhog cactus, is a columnar clustering plant in the family Cactaceae, that is native to Mexico. The stems grow up to around 8 inches tall and 1.5 to 3 inches in diameter and are covered in gray to yellow spines. E. marksianus generally blooms in spring to early summer with bright red to orange flowers. This cactus is grown as an ornamental plant for its small size and showy flowers. E. marksianus grows best in full sun to partial shade while sitting in well-draining soils. Water the plant adequately during summer and keep dry during winter. Allow the soil to completely dry out in between waterings. USDA plant hardiness zones 9b to 11b.

Echinocereus marksianus seeds require consistent moisture and humidity to germinate, but the soil should not remain soaking wet. Cloning boxes, ziplock bags, and other containers that retain humidity are ideal to store sown pots. Use a well-draining sterilized soil mix. Seeds should be sown directly on top of the potting mixture and lightly covered with a thin layer of sand or potting mix, just enough to cover the seeds. Germinating pots should be kept indoors, out of extreme light and heat. Ideal germination temperatures range from 75°F to 85°F. Germination typically takes 2 to 4 weeks to occur. Even with optimal conditions, germination may be slow and sporadic.
