I have decided to list this Icaros DNA top cut, measuring 32 cm in length.

Icaros DNA is not actually a clone but rather refers to the seller that wild harvests these seeds from the Matacuna region in Peru, with permission from the local community. Julio has been distributing these seeds for a long time and is a respected vendor in the community.

These particular plants are famous for their extremely blue and spiny formations, the true, non-cuzcoensis Peruviana.

There has been some discussion around the similarities between Icaros DNA, Sharxx Blue & Rosei 2. Some have suggested that both Sharxx Blue and Rosei 2 are, in fact, Icaros DNA seeds where a specific trait (blue) was then cloned out to form these named genetics.

Although this cut is green, that is mainly due to him being hard-grown and outdoors for the last 15-odd years. If he is grown indoors, his new growth will form with that amazing blue look that has become quite famous among growers over the years.

Steps For Rooting

Once the cut is received, place it around 1/2 inch to 1 inch in a pot of substrate. I use wooden kebab skewers to hold up the piece. Water lightly and you should start getting new root growth within a few weeks to a few months depending on conditions.

An alternative way would be to stick them in perlite and wait for them to root, once roots form you can re-pot.

All plants sold are strictly for garden / ornamental purposes. We are here to cultivate these beautiful plants and spread them as far as we can, nothing outside of growing (all things related to growing) will be tollerated.
