Description

Trichocereus pachanoi ‘Murcia’ | ‘Achuma’,  ‘San Pedro’ | Unrooted cutting

Yet another of our UK exclusives, ‘Murcia’ is a nice fat seed-grown Trichocereus pachanoi (‘San Pedro’) cactus which we first discovered when visiting a grower who we know there. Why not bring some welcome genetic variety to your Trichocereus collection with these great unrooted cuttings? Shipped from Spain or the UK (dependent on the size you order/which is closer to your location).

Also less commonly known by names such as ‘Aguacolla’, ‘Giganton’, ‘Hahuacollay’, ‘Huachuma’ and ‘Wachuma’, Trichocereus pachanoi (syn. Echinopsis pachanoi) is a fast-growing columnar cactus found naturally in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador and Peru. A native of the Ecuadorian and Peruvian Andes Mountains, where it prefers an altitude range of around 6,600 to 9,800 feet, pachanoi has been used for more than 3,000 years by humans, variously as an ornamental, for religious divination and in traditional medicine (human and animal). It’s closely related to the ‘Bolivian Torch’, Trichocereus bridgesii and Trichocereus peruvianus, the ‘Peruvian Torch’.

Trichocereus pachanoi is a light to dark green cactus, growing up to twenty feet tall (although the highest recorded was forty feet!) under ideal conditions in USDA Zones 8-10. Its stems, usually forming multiple branches from the plants base, grow up to fifteen centimetres in diameter and generally possess six to eight ribs.

Pachanoi’s origins in the Andes mountains enable the species to withstand far lower temperatures than can many other cacti and it’s consequently easy to grow indoors and outdoors in most areas. Averaging around twelve inches of new growth per year in an ideal climate, pachanoi can be propagated from seed or cuttings, requiring fertile, free-draining soil and regular watering.
