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 imaginable, the reason I began collecting them many years ago! Absolutely stunning and equal to any flower out there!

The grouping pictures show a variety of Trichs growing among 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 propagate our cactus weekly during the spring and summer so we recommend checking back as often as you'd like to see new offerings as soon as they've started rooting.   Email us if you have questions**.

 ** These are not show cacti, they may have blemishes, scars etc. as do almost all cactus unless very sheltered from others bumping them etc. They are also juveniles and what they look like right now is highly likely to change with growth and TLC!

We've been collecting different cacti and succulents for 15 plus years, lots of factors in play on growing cacti and their appearance. Natural lighting variation, soil types, watering, temps, time of year, fertilizers etc.

*** pictures also show how a cactus can have misc. scratches, scars etc. towards the base but new growth and new pups will eventually hide and lower marks.  Occasionally a tip may have some marks, these too will eventually move down the side with new growth being blemish free.

Sweet cactus

Delivered healthy and happy

Nice and blue.

I received a beautiful blue Trichocereus peruvianus in a four inch container, when I requested one that had sold previously. Great customer service all around and fast shipping.


Once again The Succulent Source knocks it out of the park! Top notch trichocereus delivered quick and in great condition! Always more than pleased with my purchases from this vendor!

Great plants

This was my first order and the plants came as promised. Absolutely gorgeous San Pedro. I’m sure I will order more in the future!

Perfect condition

These little guys were shipped to me in one of the most ingenious ways I’ve ever seen. Even though Fedex delivered the box upside down this did not affect the cactus in the slightest. They arrived in perfect condition and I will be using them as grafting rootstock. Couldn’t have gotten a better deal. I live in Pennsylvania and I will keep ordering from the succulent source for as long as it’s in business. Amazing service. Arrived here in 4 days which is as good as it can realistically get for the price. Thank you!!
