San Pedro
    #2856255 - 07/04/04 02:07 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I have a San Pedro and was wondering is there a certain way to make them bloom and branch?

Also , one of them grew skinny in the middle from lack of water and now is growing big at the top. Should I cut it up and transplant the pieces or just leave it like it is?

Thanks, mB

I was also wondering about forcing them to branch, I have a few peruvianus and was unable to find any info on this.

Cutting off the active growing tip will force pups, but if you put a heavy glass or something on the tip it'll make it think it's been hindered at the meristem and throw off some pups.

The only way to get it to flower is to let it grow alot. Give it a bigger pot or put it in the ground, IMHO. With most plants, if you want growth on top, get it to grow on the bottom.

Edit: Or maybe just change the soil out... I did that to my opuntia a few weeks ago, and it threw out 2 pups immediatly. (ofcourse all opuntia can do IS pup, but none the less)

I have several san pedro cuttings that are no more than a foor high that are flowering simply because of their age. They were taken from 6' cacti.

I have bunches of cacti from cuttings. Your post gives me hope that one of them might flower. I've heard that nightime low temps are a must and if there are lots of street lights at night it can throw them off.

Research flowering conditions for san pedro, and give that to them for flowering. for arms just cut the top and if they are mature for new stalks i reccomend re potting to bigger pot stimulates growth take bout a month and a half(atleast in my experience)

I have always believed that cacti must remain in a stationary position in order to induce flowering. That means no moving the pots around, or turning them to balance the sunlight exposure on all sides. In other words, you have to let them sit still. I have 2+ year old pedros nearly 2 ft tall, and they have never bloomed. Another type of Tricho (non-active) is about the same age, and it flowered this year. The difference? It sat very still, and was never moved since the Winter months.

My daughter's high school biology teacher, a Pedro fan, said that in the fall the cactus must be allowed to get cold at night. Down to like 30 degrees F. This will trigger flowering he says. They are apparently used to cold weather in the mountains of Peru.
