Echinopsis candicans is a clump-forming cactus that resembles the 'Torch Cactus' but not as tall and does not stand as straight. The large white areoles produce brownish yellow spines, the central spines being up to 10 cm (3.9 in) long, the radial spines only up to 4 cm (1.6 in).

The fragrant white flowers open at night.
