Huanucoensis Information

Huanuacoensis is another Trichocereus and is a cousin to San Pedro, Bolivian Torch, and Peruvianus. While it is not described as an official species- it has become very popular among the Trichocereus community. It is characterized by wide ribs that allow it to grow very thick. It is commonly much thicker than Peruvian torches. The spine length varies- they can be long or short, but there are typically a low number of spines per areole. Huanucoensis cacti are believed to have originated from Huanuco, which is a relatively large city in Peru. Huanuco is adjacent to Chavin de Huantar, which is another city where many other Trichocereus cultivars originate from. Huanucoensis was brought from Peru to the USA in the 1950’s by nursery owner Harry Johnson, Sr. Today, it can commonly be found growing in some parts of the United States, particularly in California. If you’re looking to add a unique cactus to your garden, then this may definitely be the one for you!
