Why Cuttings? Because it is the simplest way to propagate columnar cactus! Seeds take years to grow before reaching 1-2 feet in length. Cuttings take just a few weeks to a few months to begin rooting and becoming established growing cactus. What a head start! It is also cheaper to ship a cutting/s vs potted cactus. Time and money makes sense to me. Please read our Cactus cutting FAQ on how to grow your cactus cutting!
*** Spines MAY OR MAY NOT have been trimmed, new growth will have full length spines. Please do not order if you only want full spines, or contact us first, thanks.
Part of the Trichocereus family, cousins of San Pedro and Bridgesii, these are healthy cuts that are ready to be placed in the ground or in decorative pots. These guys have thorns!

We can do larger, smaller cuttings, we also sell them potted and in larger quanities, contact us for more information and we can create custom listing for you.
The San Pedro is a fast-growing columnar cactus native to the Andes Mountains of Peru between 2000-3000 m in altitude. It is also found in Bolivia, Chile and Ecuador, and it is cultivated in other parts of the world.
They also produce the most giant, beautiful and fragrant flowers imagineable! Absolutely stunning and equal to any flower out there!
The grouping pictures show the San Pedro growing amongst some of it’s cousins, a few of which we also sell. They are awesome plants, whether in pots or planted as landscape specimens.
