Echinopsis pachanoi - (Syn: Trichocereus pachanoi)
Echinopsis pachanoi, San Pedro or Huachuma is a legendary columnar cactus from the Andes where it grows at elevations up to 3000m. Usually known by its older deprecated synonym Trichocereus pachanoi, San Pedro is instantly recognisable by its wide open ribs and often glaucous-green colouration. Its spines are typically small but can become longer with age. It is a fast-growing cactus if given sufficient water in the warmer growing months.
