San Pedro Information

Trichocereus pachanoi or commonly known as “San Pedro” is the fastest growing species of columnar cacti and also produce the largest flowers in the cacti world. Their natural habitat is the higher elevations of South America, specifically in Peru, Ecuador, Chile, Argentina, and Bolivia.Β  They are not considered “desert” cacti as they typically deal with damp soils, high elevations, and cooler temperatures.

Oscar is a San Pedro cultivar that many Trichocereus collectors have in their garden. It grows quite thick and is also known to produce many flowers when it blooms, making it a great cactus for breeding. The characteristic that makes Pach Oscar stand out is that its genetics give it a greater probability of cresting. Many seeds that have Pach Oscar as a parent end up becoming crested.

Although the name implies this is a crested cultivar, that is not necessarily true about T. Pachanoi Quasi Cristata (TPQC). The original plant did have an injury and from there began to crest, however none of the cuts that have come since have crested again. Despite this, this is quite an eye catching cactus. It’s skin is a lovely glaucous blue. Most growers agree that TPQC is a Pachanoi (San Pedro), but some believe it could be a T. Peruvianus (Peruvian Torch). This may be do to how blue they get, much more so than most San Pedro. TPQC is definitely a must have in any Trichocereus collector’s garden, especially one that is already rooted and ready to make the most out of the growing season.

These are 100% San Pedro seedlings but are a hybrid of the “Oscar” and “TPQC” cultivars.Β The first cactus listed are the seeds’ “mother”.
