The San Pedro Trichocereus cactus is a fast-growing columnar cactus native to the Andes Mountains of Peru between 2000-3000 m in altitude. It is also found in Bolivia, Chile and Ecuador, and it is cultivated in other parts of the world.
They also produce the most giant, beautiful and fragrant flowers imagineable! Absolutely stunning and equal to any flower out there!
The grouping pictures show the San Pedro growing amongst some of it’s cousins, a few of which we also sell. They are awesome plants, whether in pots or planted as landscape specimens.
**We make cuttings weekly but depending on multiple factors, your cuttings may need to wait to be cutt and or calloused prior to shipping, we try and ship cactus cuts out quickly but our #1 goal is they are dry when leaving and dry when they arrive so please be patient especially on larger # orders. **Lengths can vary by 1" or so, sometimes an inch less, sometimes an inch more, we always try and cut the healthiest/nicest looking cutting. Email us if you have questions**.
Why cuttings? Because it is the easiest way to propagate may types of cactus, especially ornamental columnar types. It also is less work for us instead of having to cut, pot and get them established which saves you, the customer money if you want to experiment with rooting them yourself. Please see our Cactus FAQ on how to do this!
Cuttings are cuttings, these are not show cacti, they may have blemishes, scars etc. as do almost all cactus unless very sheltered from others bumping them etc. If you are giving these away for a wedding or birthday gift, please be realistic, and or email us in advance to discuss looking for a super blemish free cutting. Picture of the 4 below shows a variation in color, shape, marks etc. We grow our cacti in full sun, partial sun, and complete shade, as well as in different soil types on our multi acre properties. We've been collecting different cacti and succulents for 15 plus years, if you order 4 cuttings and all 4 look slightly different, it just means they came from different areas on our property growing under different conditions.
