San Pedro crested – Trichocereus pachanoi f. Cristata

R750 incl. VAT

Where it grows

Indigenous to the Andes Mountains of South America.

Special features

San Pedro cacti have blue-green stems, usually with 6-8 raised ribs running down the length of the stem. In the crested form, however, these ribs contort and multiply, giving rise to ‘brain’ like appearance. As with the natural form, they can also grow into a tall, fan-like shape, but are extremely slow growing and this will take many years.

Care Guide

Give these San Pedro cacti plenty of light. They can usually be slowly adjusted to full sun without issue. They should always be planted in a fast draining, airy soil medium as they do not like having wet roots. You can water them often in the warmer months of the year, but avoid watering during the winter periods.

Growing season

Spring and summer.
