Trichocereus peruvianus | ‘Blue Torch’, ‘Peruvian Torch’ | ~10-12cm 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!
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 twelve inches of new growth per year (in ideal conditions), this seed will produce some lovely plants, provided you can offer it a little fertile, free-draining soil and regular watering!
Grown organically from seed in the Spanish sunshine!
