More info: This Echinopsis hybrid has absolutely no psychoactive properties as the name might suggest so if you happen to ingest this plant you will definitely be disappointed, in fact ingesting 'Hallucination' might give you a tummy ache, not that we do not grow any plants with special medicinal properties we do, in fact check out Trichocereus panchanoi to name one. Instead the name of this Echinopsis hybrid 'HALLUCINATION' alludes to its day-glow flower colors, described by hybridizer Mark Dimmitt as a very intense crimson and purple bloom.
Notes: Heavy pupper/offset producer and a profuse bloomer too. Beautiful electric-neon blooms.
