Does anyone happen to know any good books on the genus Echinopsis? I've developed a bit of an obsession and want to read up on them.

Species or hybrids? Also do you mean Echinopsis sensu stricto, or sensu lat. that is containing Trichocereus and Lobivia?

For the species I can only think of the very expensive general works on cacti. Some books may be out of print, but you can often find them secondhand on EBAY.

For the hybrids I found these, none of the books have I read:-

Think this one is in German though:-

There is a web site:-
