This listing is for Trichocereus deserticolus subsp. fulvilanus (‘Cacto’) seeds. We also sell several different strains of this exciting species as live plants, if you prefer.

Trichocereus deserticola subsp. fulvilanus is a Chilean cactus which is a rarity in cultivation. Previously known as Trichocereus fulvilanus, it is thought to be closely associated with Trichocereus chalaensis and Trichocereus coquimbanus. It has also been referred to by several other names, including Cereus deserticola subsp. fulvilana, Cereus fulvilanus, Echinopsis deserticola subsp. fulvilana, Echinopsis deserticolus subsp. fulvilanus, Echinopsis fulvilana, Echinopsis fulvilanus and Trichocereus deserticola subsp. fulvilanus. We also grow the type species of Trichocereus deserticolus.

Growing to a mature height of roughly two metres tall, fulvilanus is a light-green, branching columnar species which produces truly gorgeous, brown-red spines. Amazing, white to whitish flowers (roughly five to twelve centimetres in diameter) which – similar to many other Trichocereus species – only bloom at night. The flowers are followed by small, reportedly edible, fruits.

Tolerating slightly wetter soil than that of its parent species, fulvilanus is easily cultivated from seed or cutting in USDA Hardiness Zones 9-11. Grow in full sun to partial shade, using a mildly acidic to mildly alkaline potting soil. If growing from seed, we suggest using a ‘Takeaway Tek’, such as those collected in our Cultivation section. Space the plants a metre or two apart to allow them ample room to reach maturity and don’t overwater or tolerate frosts!
