Peruvian Torch Cactus
Trichocereus peruvianus (Peruvian Torch Cactus) is native to the high Andes. Peruvian Torch Cactus are a very hardy and easy to grow columnar cactus, often growing a foot per year and reaching heights of over 15 feet (40 feet has been recorded). Peruvian Torch Cactus is ribbed , with usually 6 to 8 ribs. It is a branching cactus and often has many side arms.
Trichocereus Peruvianus (Peruvian Torch Cactus) is closely related to San Pedro Cactus, but much less common. Trichocereus peruvianus is similar in appearance, but has longer spines and has a darker color, sometimes being blue. Trichocereus peruvianus grows much like san pedro, but, amazingly, it seems to grow faster and be even more hardy.

No guarantees can be made regarding how well a plant will do given the many variables to each buyers location, attention to care or factors unforeseeable, etc.
You may encounter common mold at the cut end of your cacti… this is vary normal. Mold is found all over the earth including Antarctica to the Sahara desert… even on day old bread.
You may see black, white, green, red or orange spotted color mold… this mold rarely affect your plant. Do be aware of any brown/mushy spots though. Contact us before you attempt to butcher/cut away at your cactus, etc so we can better direct you to the least invasive remedy possible.
As good practice all newly acquired plants should be held alone in quarantine for at least 2 weeks. All cuttings we provide have no roots or soil to reduce any soil borne issues. Every cutting gets dunked/ put in a sterilizing solution, allowed to dry and then hand inspected before they are shipped out. Sometimes the boxed cactus can develop minor mold due to the changes of climate during shipment. A quick dunking into a dilute solution of hydrogen peroxide, iodine or household bleach water, (about 1 Tbs sterilizer to 1 cup water) then drying of the cutting should help keep any mold in check.
If you have any issues or other questions about your new purchase please let us know… we are glad to help.
Tricho cacti make vary large fragrant night blooming flowers a few times a year and are quite insect resistant too. They tolerate poor soil and little water, also they have been known to top upwards 40 feet. Yeah… GIANT!
You might expect growth anywhere from 1′ foot to perhaps even 24″ a year per rooted cutting. Be sure the soil you use is well draining and won’t pool water, such as 50/50 of Perlite & rich potting soil. Keep the moisture low till roots take well. Roots are ready for deep watering when you can lift the pot by the cacti itself. I found partial shade and twice monthly deep summer watering works great. Let the soil dry between watering or you risk root rot. If you get any mushy brown spots cut it out or off quickly, dry and re-root if necessary. Black spots or dry brown scabs are no big deal other than cosmetic, so don’t sweat it too much. Have fun and enjoy your beautiful Trichocereus Cactus.This Top Cutting lot are about 9 1/2 ]]>
