Species & Cultivar 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.
Monstrose is a mutation that can affect San Pedro cactus and cousins (as well as other species of cacti). It causes the cactus ribs to grow in irregular, bumpy, and wavy ways. In many cases, the growth can make it look like the cactus is melting. The bumps and irregular growths are completely random so the current growth does not indicate what any of the new growth will look like. Monstrose also has the ability to form into a crest (another mutation). Monstrose cacti are still able to produce the big, beautiful flowers that Trichocereus cacti are known for, however they will typically have shorter spines (and they can even completely lack spines or areoles in some spots!)
