Need help killing a San Pedro
    #4605303 - 08/31/05 09:28 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

The thread title is a joke, of course. I just wanted to emphasize Pedro's ability to survive.
Take a look at this guy:



He was part of a big stalk that fell over in December of last year. He sat around in a pot my roommate put him in for about two months with no water. Then I chopped it up and did various things with the cuttings. This is one of two that got replanted...some time in June, watered maybe thrice in between. He's been knocked over about ten times by punk kids since, been getting yellow and even brown from some sort of infection for about five months and neglected in general. Hell, I think I even planted him upside down. But I wanted to see if it'd rot away to nothing or not...

And as we have it:



And even:



I've read that San Pedros were placed at the entrances to homes to ward off evil spirits and now I know why.
I really think they could take them!

well if you were in a hot ass desert, with jack rabbits
chewing the shit out of you for water, you would develop
a strong survival mechanism.

I love my san pedro. I left him alone for a few months without water and it's doing fantastice. Seems to have grown close to 8 inches in less than a year. That's probably nothing compared to some san pedro's, but I have a brown thumb, so it's perfect for those who have trouble growing things.


I know of one effective method of disposing of san pedro, but it usually causes indigestion.

The very nature of experience is ineffable; it transcends cognitive thought and intellectualized analysis. To be without experience is to be without an emotional knowledge of what the experience translates into. The desire for the understanding of what life is made of is the motivation that drives us all. Without it, in fear of the experiences what life can hold is among the greatest contradictions; to live in fear of death while not being alive.

San Pedro isn't native to the Arizona desert. It actually needs considerable shade and supplemental water and fertilizer to grow well there.

That's not neccessarily true. The Pedros in my yard were almost never watered before I moved in and none of the ones I tend get any real amount of shade. There is even a big mother plant I take cuttings from at work. Its gets watered very rarely and has no shade what so ever and is doing quite well.

I had two that I had taken out of the pots to eventually plant outside. They ended up sitting on the picnic table for three months. They sent out roots from the side facing down and pups started growing from the skyward side. Now I have them planted and they are growing great. The roots on the side just stopped growing but are still there like tendrils.
