San Pedro health (pics)
    #383389 - 09/01/01 05:47 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

Hey everyone. I've had my San Pedro for about 3 or 4 months, when I got it... It was about 14-16 inches tall, now its almost 2 feet, it has grown a ton. I am starting to see some little white sports on it that are making me concerned, I'm not sure if it's fungus or parasites, or if its normal. We have some humid weather down here in Georgia so I'm leaning towards a fungus. I took some pics of the affected area. If anyone knows what this is, if it's harmful, or how to get rid of it... please let me know. I have felt the cactus for rotting, and its fine, no soft spots.

Heres the pics:


This is the area of concern.




Peace out,
Gumby

These are most likely shield lice (cochinilia). Use some insecticide(like Metasystox R, or more natural something on Pyrethrum basis), to kill them.
You can also manualy scrach them off the surface.
Most insecticides have a waiting time of about 1 month after application. But consult the packaging.

Commonly called scale.
Like Anno said you can wipe/softly scrape of with a rag and/ or Q-tips. They will leave scars but once the scale is removed the pedro would be safe if ingested accidently.

Alright, thanks for the help... Is there a more natural approach to use? Such as cyanne or something? If not, then it looks like I'm off the the store to get some insectacide. I do not plan on ingesting this cactus anytime soon, its still a little small. I'd like to see it flower some day.

Peace,
-Gumby

Hope you get it under control. When you peel or skin a pedro, the scars are left on the flesh, just cut these scars out and your safe to consume. I don't think those scales would hurt you anyways, they just make it look ugly.


My pedro is doing great! It popped out a pup the other week, and the pup is now 2 1/2" tall. I bought my pedro at 22" in height, it is now 36 inches tall with a nice pup at the base after just one season of growth. These things are very aggressive growers compared to my other cacti.

Where did you buy your pedro, Gumby?Online or around town?

I bought it online. All I can seem to find around town are the Peruvian Torches. I may pick a Peruvian Torch up, I'm enjoying my cactus, they're very easy to grow. If you are intrested, i bought it from a place called Basement Shaman. I believe the address is http://www.basementshaman.com/ ... They have a nice selection of stuff.
I may order some Brungsmani or Datura seeds from them. To grow of course. The experinces I've read about Datura just sound way too intense for me.

Peace out,
-Gumby

BTW- LK are you back in town?

I thought the use of this particular cactii was limited to that of the Native American Church. Whats the deal.

All I have to say is: What the hell?

Do you also think that the use of marijuana is limited to rastafarians?

Peace out,

I'm sorry I should have specified more, I was refering to it's legal status (U.S.).

You're thinking of Lophophora williamsii -- peyote.

Got back in town last night. Found a nice amount of cubies, but not in florida(only 2 dried up cubes in fla). I found a bunch in waynesboro though, right here in good ole GA :)


BTW: If your interested in Datura stramonium(jimson weed) I have a shitload of seeds, I could send you some. I found a bunch of it in the north GA mountains this summer, up towards clayton.

Nah, San Pedro and Peruvian Torch(forgot the scientific names) are legal mescaline containing cacti. Only illegal mescaline cacti are the ones in the genus Lophophora... In the US at least. In canada mescaline is illega, but Peyote is legal... go figure.

Peace out,
Gumby
