Hi! I recently acquired a cactus that is not listed on this site. It is an Echinobivia hybrid called "rainbow bursts." Could you please add it? Thank you!

Here's the entry:

Echinobivia (XEchinobivia 'Rainbow Bursts')

It's an Echinopsis. There was a brief time when XEchinobivia was regarded as a new genus because it was supposed to be a cross between Echinopsis and Lobivia, but now all of the Lobivia species have been reclassified as synonyms of Echinopsis species, so it's just a cross between Echinopsis and Echinopsis.
