Trichocereus peruvianus 'Peruvian Torch Cactus' + Cement Planter 16cm

BOTANICAL NAME_ Trichocereus peruvianus, Echinopsis peruvianus native to Peru

AKA_ Blue Torch Cactus, San Pedro Macho

FEATURES_ Trichocereus peruvianus is an incredible species for the spine colour alone, from honey coloured to brown against a blue to green stem.  The spines are truly beautiful in reflective sunlight.  Most forms have a frosted green to blue stem which is a beautiful contrast to the golden spines and flowers are white.

PLANT PERSONALITY_ Sharp and stunning. Not afraid to say what they think but from a place of great depth and beauty.



Tapered cement planter is 16cm w x 16cm h and is potted using a quality cacti-perlite mix.


  • Light: Like many cacti and succulents, the Peruvian Torch cactus appreciates strong light during the growing season. Move plants outdoors if possible, but acclimate to direct sunlight slowly to prevent scorching. In the winter, southern exposure is perfect.
  • Water: Allow the soil mix to become nearly dry between waterings, but then water thoroughly. Great drainage is essential, never let the planter sit in water. Suspend watering in the winter, but mist occasionally.
  • Soil: A rich, fast-draining cactus mix is ideal.
  • Fertilizer: During the growing season, fertilize with a cactus fertilizer mix. Suspend feeding during the dormant winter period.
