Super Pedro

The exact taxonomy is pretty scarce on Super Pedro but he is widely believed to be a pachanoi dominant hybrid crossed with scopulicola. This particular clone was originally germinated by Jim Hall from CactusCountry and it grew extremely fast once established and was fatter than any other pachanoi / scopulicola in his garden.

There are definitely many differences between it and the standard Scop FR991, but you can clearly see the relationship to this species. Friedrich Ritter also collected and sold populations from Tarija that he described as Trichocereus crassicostatus. NMCR also collected a whole lot of seeds that produced versions of Trichocereus scopulicola that clearly differed from Ritter´s main collection. There are very few collections of Trichocereus scopulicola, so it´s either one of those or a hybrid with another parent.

UK Growing

In the UK, Pachanois are quite popular due to their hardiness and can handle our low temp during winter (around 5C before bringing them inside, although, adults can go lower). Flowers produce after around 10 years of growth, so, patience is required.

All our cacti are shipped bare root to protect the cacti, please ensure you have suitable substrate and a pot for your new dude.

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.
