Freaky Cacti proudly offers limited stocks of these young and healthy Trichocereus terscheckii ‘CS01’ cacti, organically grown from seed! These beautiful and much sought-after cacti are offered as rooted plants.

We came to the spectacular Trichocereus terscheckii (synonymous with Echinopsis terscheckii) relatively late in our initiation into the world of Trichocereus cultivation, when we came across one in a friend’s garden, causing us to appreciate how magnificent this cactus really is! A large columnar species originating from Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador and Peru, the plant’s most often called ‘Argentine Saguaro’ and ‘Cardón Grande’ (less often so ‘Cardón Santos’, ‘Golden Saguaro’, ‘San Pedro’ and ‘South American Saguaro’).

Growing well in USDA Hardiness Zones 8-13 (as do many closely-related Trichocereus species, for example the closely related Trichocereus pachanoi and Trichocereus peruvianus), it’s easy and fun to grow from seed, resulting in the growth of branching columns which reach up to approximately ten metres in height and fifty centimetres in diameter. Terscheckii also forms amazing flowers, given the right cultivation conditions. Start the seeds using the ‘Enhanced Takeaway Tek’ (in our Cultivation section) – their main requirements consisting of well-drained soil, high humidity levels and adequate light, nutrients and water.
