Crested San Pedro Cactus: Unique and Rare San Pedro Variant

We at Zamnesia are proud being able to offer this very interesting and cool variant of the San Pedro cactus, the Crested San Pedro (Echinopsis pachanoi cristata). What makes the Crested San Pedro unique is that is has a number of “growth points” all over it, unlike the original San Pedro which grows from only one point into the typical “organ pipe” shape.

With each of these growing points at times growing at different paces, the Crested San Pedro makes an outright spectacular cactus specimen that can grow into the coolest shapes depending on the cutting.

The cuttings of the Crested San Pedro that we offer have a size of 10-11cm and you can pot them in the same way as its phallic-shaped nephew. Watching the cuttings grow and then seeing in what shapes they will develop makes cactus growing now even more exciting and fun with the Crested San Pedro exclusively here at the Zamnesia web shop !


Like the ordinary Echinopsis pachanoi version, the Crested San Pedro is quite easy to grow and can even tolerate a colder environment as long as temperatures won’t drop below 12°C . Just make sure to use a fertile and well-draining potting mix. When you water the San Pedro, start out with watering the cactus well but then always allow it to dry between watering. Compared to some other cacti, the San Pedro can tolerate a little more water and overall isn’t as picky as some other cacti varieties. Some growers compare growing the San Pedro to other “normal plants” since its cultivation is really not that much different or more difficult.

The San Pedro cactus likes a good amount of sun like we do but in the same way doesn’t like too much of it especially in the hot summer months. It can be best to place the cactus in some light shade to keep it from being burnt by the sun. In Winter it is advised that you encourage the cactus to enter dormancy by withholding water and nutrients.

Like with other cacti, the San Pedro is susceptible to mould and fungus but does better here as compared to some others. Nevertheless, you should keep an eye on your watering frequency and moisture levels to keep the risk for mould and fungus growth low.

    Happy days


    The cactus is arrived quickly, beautiful , healthy. Thank you!


    Envoi rapide et beau produit
    Exellent produit, taille et aspect conforme, a commencé a faire des racines avant meme la mise en pot !


    Beautiful cactus
    Looks very healthy and fresh. Hopefully it will root well. Worst case scenario, I’ll eat it, but I’d rather have a living cactus. These can be so beautiful.


    Buen esqueje
    Me llego en perfectas condiciones ,bien envalado y sin golpes,tambien venia cicatrizado,llevaba varios dias cortado y es de agradecer para evitar moho dentro del paquete.Ademas zamnesia siempre es generoso y me envio un buen tamaño. Gracias


    unfortunately this little guy didn't last long. I did everything by the book and it just died...


    Una auténtica maravilla
    Sembrado hace unos ocho meses. Enraizó a las pocas semanas y empezó a crecer... Hasta la parada del invierno. Algo delicado al sol directo. Vino en perfectas condiciones y bastante más grande de lo que esperaba.


    Crested Echinopsis Cutting
    Beautiful clean cutting from a well cared for mother plant. My cutting is large -its the size of my palm - excellent for quicker propagation. I was tempted to cut it into two, but the fan shape is so appealing you want to see how it further develops… It’s nice to handle: smooth - no spines on my specimen. It’s cool and heavy : well hydrated. I potted it in cactus soil 3 weeks ago, and water sparingly. It is thriving in the window sill. It’s a grateful grower. It’s so pleasant to touch - I find myself stroking it every time I check up on it. Thank you for my new ( unexpected) plant/pet !


    Bin sehr zufrieden. Gesunde Pflanze und etwas größer als angegeben. Mir fehlt bloß eine detaillierte Anleitung zum einpflanzen.
