Premium Trichocereus (Echinopsis) Pachanoi Cuts – 50cm+

£70.00

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

I have finally managed to get these gorgeous Trichocereus pachanoi (San Pedro) cuts listed, it is quite a labour-intensive process so I apologise for the delay.

But, here we are. These are lovely, girthy San Pedros plants.

All the cuts are 50cm +, I did not have a tape measure with me so used a coke can to give an idea of size. Got to pivot 😉

Please have a look at the images, I have taken multiple shots per plant to show any markings etc. There is one or two that had a bit of thrip damage early on, all plants are fully healed over but have some character markings. As you can see, these cuts are in active growth mode and some are pushing roots already, please see the individual listings for the cuttings that have started to rock and roll.

I have a few more in stock, but, given how much work it is to list these cuts individually, I have a deal for you.

Here is the deal:

  1. If you choose one of the numbered listings, you will get the pictured plant.
  2. If you select “Tricho Choice”, I will knock £5 off the full price and send you a San Pedro cutting of my choosing. It will be on a first come first serve basis and I will send the best-looking cuts out first :-). Saves me some sanity and you get a slightly discounted price. Win-Win. There are some sexy cuts I have not listed ;-).

The one added advantage of buying the larger cuttings is to avoid a lot of potential etiolation. As the bigger the plant has more energy, it can focus on root development without largely affecting the top growth. This brings down the total cycle to fully established roots right down exponentially. It also saves you 2 seasons’ worth of active growth.

Synonyms

  • Echinopsis pachanoi
  • San Pedro Cactus
  • Wachuma

Some Additional Info

Trichocereus (except for bridgesii / Bolivian Torch) are very hardy and weather tolerant. Trichocereus pachanoi can handle temps as low as -9c for very short periods.

Native to South America, the earliest evidence of San Pedro was found in Peru, specifically, the Guitarrero cave of the Callejón de Huaylas valley. They are natively found in the Andes Mountains at altitude levels around 2000m – 3000m. San Pedro (the class of Trichocereus) is also found in regions like Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Chile, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela.

Trichocereus pachanoi are night bloomers with these gorgeous flowers doing their thing at night, you have to be quick or you will miss the event :-). A flower event is a special event as it can take anywhere from 5 years to 8 years for an adult plant to produce a flower. When they do, you do your happy dance, thank the cactus Gods, snap a million pics, harvest the pollen, and wait for the next event.

    Seriously, what's not to love in the magnificence of this specimen? He's a Bobby dazzler for sure! Packed well and dispatched promptly, the beast arrived in fine fettle, and is now chilling in a shady corner of the conservatory. Another quality plant, Byron, muchas gracias amigo mio!

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.
