Trichocereus pachanoi cv. ‘Murcia #2’ | ‘Achuma’, ‘San Pedro’ | Live plant

(syn. Echinopsis pachanoi cv. ‘Murcia #2’, Trichocereus macrogonus subsp. pachanoi cv. ‘Murcia #2’, Trichocereus macrogonus var. pachanoi cv. ‘Murcia #2’)

This one’s another great seed-grown ‘San Pedro’ cactus which we obtained from our Spanish friends; Trichocereus pachanoi cv. ‘Murcia #2’! Available as live, rooted plants.

Trichocereus pachanoi (syn. Echinopsis pachanoi) is a fast-growing columnar cactus which is originally from Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador and Peru. Besides ‘San Pedro’, other informal names for this species include ‘Achuma’,  ‘Aguacolla’, ‘Giganton’, ‘Hahuacollay’, ‘Huachuma’ and ‘Wachuma’. A near relative of Trichocereus bridgesii (‘Bolivian Torch’), Trichocereus macrogonus and Trichocereus peruvianus (‘Peruvian Torch’), this cactus is native to the Ecuadorian and Peruvian Andes, favouring an altitude of between 2,012 and 2,987 metres.

A light to dark green-coloured cactus which grows to approximately twelve metres high under ideal conditions in USDA Hardiness Zones 8-10, Trichocereus pachanoi forms multiple branches from its base, each up to fifteen centimetres in diameter.

Pachanoi is able to handle growing in far lower temperatures than do many other cactus species, hence it’s quite easy to grow indoors and outdoors in most areas of the world. Producing an average of roughly thirty centimetres growth per year (under suitable conditions), Trichocereus pachanoi ‘Murcia #2’ can be propagated from seed or cuttings, requiring only fertile, free-draining soil and regular watering.
