I decided to cut my 3 pronged T. pachanoi (San Pedro) Rod and offer them up for sale. I have a lovely 25cm whole plant for sale.

Pachanoi Rod is a SAB Clone and a rare Ecuadorian Trichocereus pachanoi clone.

Different from predominantly cultivated / cultivar (PC), this is your classic short-spined pachanoi.

Trichocereus pachanoi Rod comes from the typus location of Trichocereus Pachanoi, Ecuador. You can recognize Ecuadorian Pachs by the bright green epidermis and the unique areole shape. “Rod” has very strong V-notches above the areoles. Old growth can have a dark blue/green color while some young growth is typically grass green.

The true origins of Rod aren’t very well known but was highly likely named after a SAB member who originally brought this clone into cultivation.

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.
