Characteristics of San Pedro
    #4705254 - 09/24/05 03:12 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

What characteristics belong to the San Pedro cactus but few, if any, other cacti?
How does one tell a San Pedro apart from similar looking cacti?
Also, where can one acquire a living San Pedro?

Lots of ethnobotanical suppliers on the internet , the apperance is something hard to explain , the ribs are thicker then some , really just fermilarize yourself with what they look like, what related species look like, and what similar looking but unrelated species look like , also I will say, In my time, have found that Trichocereus Pachanoi , is variable, even cuttings from the same grandfather cacti :smile: -Tranceharper

Most important is the rib structure. Fat ribs but clearly seperated. Amount of ribs is normaly 5-9. The younger the plant the less ribs (in general). Spines are very variable. Young seedlings (>4cm) have very small hair like spines. Then they get bigger spines (about nine in each aerole), the ones that really hurt. When they get bigger (>80 cm) they begin losing there spines, the spines are first getting smaller and less and at a certain point they don;t produce spines any more. When you have cuttings of a plant that has lost it's spines they will never grow back. So if you start with a cutting of a old plant you can have a san pedro of 10 cm without spines.

I advise to just have a look at one in a smartshop or something and you will never mess up again. If you live in europe i can get you some nice specimen for a very good price, just PM.
