Peruvianus Information

Trichocereus peruvianus, otherwise known as Peruvian Torch Cactus, is a fast growing columnar cactus that is one of San Pedro’s cousins. It is native to the high elevations of Peru, specifically in the Andes mountains. Their skin can range from dark green to a beautiful blue hue. They are prized for their gorgeous long, yellow spines. They can also achieve great thickness, which is another reason why Peruvian Torches are highly sought after in the cactus community. In similar fashion to it’s cousins Pachanoi, Bridgesii, and Scopulicola, Pervianus product large white, night-blooming flowers that have a lovely fragrance.

Peruvianus Coyote Information

Coyote has become a relatively popular Peruvian Torch named cultivar within the Trichocereus community. It originates from an old growth stand that’s over 30 years old in East County San Diego. Many old growth pieces were taken from the stand (with permission from the owner) by a Tricho cultivator and were distributed across the community far and wide. The original owner of the old growth Peru Coyote stand says they got it from a grower in Alpine, CA. Coyote is characterized by its beautiful blue-green hue. Once established it grows quickly and very thick, like most other Peruvian Torches. Something interesting about Coyote is that its spines are on the shorter side compared to other Peruvianus cultivars.
