Is this San Pedro?
    #4701546 - 09/23/05 06:44 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

The following Pictures are of a small cactus that I Recently bought.

I am currently unsure as to what species it is but it seems to resemble the description of a San Pedro cactus.
Could someone on this forum who has experience identifying cacti help me out?

Pictures is fuzzy, I believe it is a Blue Candle Cactus ( Myrtillocactus geometrizans), here are some clearer pics, is this it ? I have a cluster of three that are now about 16" tall, I love um, so cute ! They are columnar cacti just as san pedro are, and ( for me ) grow alot faster , they are nice plants, and do contain the alkaloid, In negligable amounts, I would however, just leave it grow :smile: -Tranceharper

Yes, I believe that you are correct.
Thank you for the help and the prompt response.
Also, sorry for the awful quality of the pictures, I was forced to use a web-cam when I couldn't find my camera.

Not a problem, My Camera died , and so even pics like that are better then what I can do now :smile: I really do like the blue candle cacti , all and all, If I get more cacti, which probobly wont happen for some time ( I have alot ) I will get more of these , the cluster I have are a very rich blue color , and grow fast as I said , I need to repot them, they came in a plastic pot with what appears to be a mix of Coir ( cocunut fiber ), preilite , pumice, and sand , they grow well, but the coir holds alot of moisture :/ and about two weeks ago , I turned over the planter to find a mushroom growing out of the hole in bottem, no idea what it was, a bright banana yellow , the medium was dry however . What did yours come planted in ? -Tranceharper

Mine came in a plastic container and is potted in gravel (glued together or something, imposable to remove single stones) with 2 other cacti.
I would like to re-pot each one in a separate pot but have no idea how to go about doing this and don't want to harm any of them.
Also, what are the differences between this cactus and San Pedro (aside from the low alkaloid count)?

Different Genus completely, I believe these are native to the deserts near Chichuaha mexico , the blue candle cactus , or 'whorlberry' also produces a small edible fruit . And from what I have read, their propigation is not as simple as cut, dry , plant , and water , could be wrong . Otherwise I just treat these as I do Trichocereus , They do as I said, apparently grow much faster then Tricho's -Tranceharper
