History

Yowie is a popular Trichocereus with a distinctive spination of two parallel Spines per Areole. It also has prominent ribs and resembles an Ecuadorian Trichocereus pachanoi in appearance. Let me now offer some details regarding the origins of this clone.

Yarrawonga, Victoria is where this clone came from. Marsha (formerly known as “Yowie”), a SAB member, led PD to the Fields collection, where the mother plant of this clone flourished. The clone is easily identified by its pair of spines, which distinguishes it from other clones of this species.

  • 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.
