Care and Cultivation of Trichocereus pachanoi
We now use the Takeaway Tek for germinating most cacti seeds. Click here to view the Takeaway Tek. Otherwise, follow the directions below.
Trichocereus pachanoi seed should be sown in a sterile cacti mix, either in terracotta pots or plastic, people either prefer one or the other. Cover the seed very lightly with mix and mist the surface to settle the soil and seeds. Cover with a humidity dome or plastic wrap and leave in a warm spot in 50% shade. Fluctuating temperatures are best (ie. high day temperature and low night temperature). Seedlings will emerge in 7-21 days and can be grown in the same environment for a number of months. Mist or bottom water when the soil is almost dry.
As they get older the watering can become deeper and more frequent. Potting up can be done when 5-10mm in diameter or after 6-8 weeks at a minimum. Keep in part-shade until large enough to deal with full-sun. Once established, Trichocereus species can be watered most of the year in all climates.

San Pedro | Trichocereus Pachanoi Cactus Seeds
Trichocereus pachanoi is tolerant of a wide variety of conditions and can handle more water than most cacti, making it a good cactus species for beginners. Pachanoi is frost hardy for short periods. Trichocereus pachanoi can be watered frequently during the summer months, sometimes as often as every two days if the top inch or two of the soil is dry. During the winter, your San Pedro cactus should be slowly acclimated to cool temperatures and dry, dark conditions to avoid stretching that could damage the aesthetics and structural integrity of the plant. When breaking dormancy in the spring, a reverse process of slowly introducing the factors necessary for growth may be beneficial for the same reason. For optimal skin color, Trichocereus pachanoi should be kept in partial rather than full sun and the soil should be well-draining and rich in organic nutrients and minerals. Pachanoi blooms are large, white and have a strong, pleasant perfume.

Received the seeds in a week, maybe 10 days. I followed the directions on the propagation page and sure enough, most of them came up as cute little seedlings. All interactions with the company via email has been pleasant. I am pleased thus far and will repeat business.
