Scopulicola Information

Trichocereus scopulicola or “Scop” is another species of fast growing columnar cacti that are originally from Bolivia. They are closely related to the San Pedro cactus and can look similar. The main difference between Scops and San Pedro are

  • Scops are typically a lighter green color than San Pedro
  • Scops typically have very small spines and areoles or can even be completely spineless
  • Scops often grow thicker than San Pedro
  • Scops commonly do not produce many offsets, whereas San Pedros tend to grow bushy with age

However, similar to the San Pedro, Scops produce very large and beautiful flowers. They can also survive at high elevations and withstand cold temperatures. They can struggle with heat and lack of water, unlike many other species of cactus. Scops can make very eye-catching ornamental cacti or they can make a fantastic grafting stock. Scops are often a preferred grafting stock as they are very prolific growers.

Tucson Fat Information

“Tucson Fat” is a cultivar of Scopulicola that was first offered in nurseries in Tucson, Arizona. They quickly grew in popularity as they are very hardy and can withstand the intense Arizona summers while also putting off massive amounts of growth per season. Now, they can be found in nurseries throughout Arizona. This cultivar also sometimes goes by the name “El Chapo”
