Trichocereus peruvianus | ‘Blue Torch’, ‘Peruvian Torch’ | Rooted plant

Arkham’s Botanical are very pleased to offer limited stocks of these amazing Trichocereus peruvianus cacti, grown organically from seed in the Spanish sunshine! Rooted plant, sent bare-root.

An attractive columnar cactus originally found growing in Peru, peruvianus (‘Peruvian Torch’) is sister to the famous ‘San Pedro’, or Trichocereus pachanoi, and ‘Bolivian Torch’, or Trichocereus bridgesii. It’s often confused with the related Trichocereus cuzcoensis and is a wonderful, blue-green coloured cactus.

Peruvianus has been used by humans for literally thousands of years, for example, as an ornamental, for religious practice and in traditional medicine (human and veterinary). Like many other columnar Trichocereus species, it can handle far lower temperatures than many other cacti and is consequently easy to grow indoors and outdoors in several climate zones. Averaging around thirty centimetres of new growth per year (in ideal conditions), these healthy plants will soon grow big and strong, provided you offer them a little fertile, free-draining soil and regular water!
