Wal Mart Trichocereus spachianus
    #3363700 - 11/15/04 01:38 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I just bought three Trichocereus spachianus from Wal Mart last night. I was real surprised to find them. I havent been able to find very much info on the alkaloid content of spachianus, or growing experience. Anyone familiar with this cacti?

Were they labled as Trichocereus spachianus? Because generally wal-mart cacti aren't labeled specifically.

I think the general consensus on spachianus is that it doesn't contain mescaline, but contains hordenine and possibly other alkaloids.

Sorry, If I had a camera I would post some pictures. The cacti weren't labeled. Spachianus was my ID, and although I can't say that I am 100% positive, I am pretty sure of it.

Trichocereus spachianus (Echinopsis spachiana) is pretty easy to ID. The top pic is representative:

unless there are a lot of similar looking cacti, im pretty sure those are growing all over around the Mojave area of SoCal.

those contain mescaline?

Those are not the cacti native to the Mojave area of SoCal.

I was looking at the listing for Pedros and Torches on that website. They list torches as Echinopsis peruviana. They say the the Torch is more sensitive to cold than the Pedros. I thought that the Torches were supposed to be more hardy. It also says that they get up to 5 ft long. I thought that they got much bigger than that.

I just wanted to show that to you guys and see what you said. I thought that it was wrong. Otherwise I wouldn't have said anything.
