Commonly know as Argentine Saguaro or Cardon Grande, Terscheckii cacti are one of the hardiest cacti around. This is one of the few you can grow outdoors and will handle our weather year round (you might need to wrap up through coldest part of winter). That being said, temps in the negatives for short periods shouldn’t be an issue.

Trichocereus Terscheckii are native to Catamarca In North West Argentina as well as the western slopes of the Andes, Peru & Ecuador.

Watering

Terscheckii can handle way more water than most cacti, but, it is still a cactus. Watering from Spring (April) to beginning of Autumn (End September). Depending on what kind of summer we get will depend on how frequent you need to water, but, less is better with cacti. During the winter months, little to no watering is required or the roots could rot (they do not like to be wet for long periods).

Substrate

In warmer climates, you could go for a more nutrient rich mixture (50% organic / 50% inorganic). But, in the UK, it is best to err more on the side of inorganic (60% – 70% inorganic) to ensure the pot is drained quickly. You can also plant Terscheckii outdoors in the UK, this is one of the only cacti you can.

    This cactus has some insane spine formations and is so much bigger than I expected, which always makes me happy.

    I was fascinated with terscheckii due to it's hardiness and how gigantic it grows in the wild. As someone who collects mainly lophophora, this was an excellent unique addition to my cactus collection. As usual Byron offered excellent customer service and chose such a beautiful specimen. I'm very grateful and will definitely be purchasing more cacti from Trichocereus.co.uk in the near future.

    My photography likely doesn't do it justice but I'm incredibly pleased with my new cactus. I haven't even had chance to pot it yet but I just had to share it.

    I had some issues with delivery down to royal mail. Byron managed to contact them with the receipt and get them to pull their finger out so I'm very grateful. They did offer to resend if it didn't arrive but thankfully it wasn't necessary. Despite going through god knows what during delivery it arrived undamaged thanks to being well packaged in plenty of bubble wrap and tissue.
