More info

Also known as Echinopsis pachanoi, this type of cactus has a globose trunk which develops a series of pads, until a species of fan is formed. On the surface, it is possible to observe thorns of limited length. In nature, the plant reaches 6 meters in length, whereas in pot its growth is contained but still spectacular. Contrary to other cacti, San Pedro loves water and grows in the rainy areas of the Cordillera, tolerating winter temperatures as low as -12°C: thus, cultivation is possible in the ground even in the northern regions by making sure to choose a point exposed to the sun, preferably in the morning, and a draining soil. Watering should be done more frequent than that of other cacti, and if cultivation is performed in the pot, it is possible to fertilize the plant monthly, from April to October. In nature, the plant produces big white flowers, whereas in the pot blooming is rare but not impossible. In the last years this crested variety, whose fascination due to its "curls" is undeniable, is experiencing an incredible success. Echinopsis has been known for centuries because of its slight hallucinogenic effect, which is due to the presence of mescaline in its pulp: the Indians (especially shamans and healers) used this plant by cutting it in many little slices.
