Trichocereus pachanoi | ‘Achuma’, ‘Aguacolla’, ‘Giganton’, ‘San Pedro’ | Unrooted cutting
Here’s a welcome opportunity to get your hands on a nice unrooted Trichocereus pachanoi cutting! Most commonly known as ‘San Pedro’, pachanoi (syn. Echinopsis pachanoi) is a fast-growing columnar cactus widespread to Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador and Peru.
A light to dark green cactus, growing up to approximately six metres high (although the tallest on record is double that!), under ideal conditions in USDA Zones 8-10 pachanoi puts out multiple branching stems from its base, up to fifteen centimetres in diameter. It’s closely related to the ‘Bolivian Torch’, Trichocereus bridgesii and Trichocereus scopulicola, among others.
Native to the Ecuadorian and Peruvian Andes Mountains, Trichocereus pachanoi prefers an altitude range of roughly two to three thousand metres. The species has been used for more than three thousand years by humans, as an ornamental, for religious divination and in indigenous medicinal practices.
Pachanoi’s origins in the Andes enable it 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 thirty centimetres 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.
