San Pedro Seedling Information
Trichocereus pachanoi or commonly known as “San Pedro” is the fastest growing species of columnar cacti and also produces the largest flowers in the cacti world. Their natural habitat is the higher elevations of South America, specifically in Peru, Ecuador, Chile, Argentina, as well as Bolivia. Because of their native habitat, they’re not considered “desert” cacti as they typically deal with damp soils, high elevations, and cooler temperatures.
Pach Kimnach is a cultivar that was introduced to the Trichocereus community all the way back in 1984. It was first collected in Cajamarca, Peru along the Cajamarca-Namora Road. It’s also named after the person who found it: Myron Kimnach. Myron was the director of the Huntington Botanical Gardens (HBG) at the time and is responsible for introducing many other clones and species to the cacti world. For a Pachanoi, Kimnach has. For a Pachanoi, it has long spines. In fact, some people refer to it as a “Short Spine Peruvianus”. As it matures, it becomes dark green and produces thick and very notchy growth.
Pach Jessica is a true Pachanoi variety that comes from Misplant seeds, who is the vendor that provided us with these seeds to grow the San Pedro seedlings. This is a very beautiful cultivar that produces extremely thick growth once mature. Another interesting characteristic of Pach Jessica is that its skin is an alluring blue-green color rather than the typical dark green San Pedro tends to exhibit.
