Buy San Pedro Monstrose Online
San Pedro Monstrose (Echinopsis pachanoi) is a very rare and interesting mutant variety of the San Pedro Cactus. The “monstrose” part in the name however does not refer to the cactus’ size, but rather designates this species’ abnormal, “monstrous” growth. This cactus will grow uneven ribs in a curiously shaped pattern that is always new and unpredictable. No cactus will look like the other!
Compared to the ordinary variety of the San Pedro cactus (Echinopsis pachanoi), the “Monstrose” contains the same exact amount of active compounds. When you grow this variety, the height will also be about the same.
HOW TO GROW THE ECHINOPSIS PACHANOI MONSTROSE
When compared to some other holy cacti, the echinopsis pachanoi including the Monstrose variety is very easy to grow. Coming from the altitudes of the mountain ranges of the Andes, echinopsis pachanoi can tolerate cold temperatures quite well. This cactus grows best if you keep it out of direct sunlight, so finding a shaded spot in your garden out of direct sun can be optimal.
Make sure that you plant the cactus in fertile, free-draining soil. Standard cactus soil that you can get from any well-sorted garden center will do well for this variety. Once the cactus has grown its roots, it will require very little water. Make sure you don’t overwater since echinopsis pachanoi is somewhat susceptible to fungal diseases although this variety is not as sensitive to fungus as some other cacti.
Each cutting is 25-30cm long.
