More info

Echinopsis macrogona, sometimes also referred to as trichocereus macrogonus belongs to the sacred cacti that are native to South America. Similar in appearance to the more-known Peruvian Torch (echinopsis peruviana), this cactus contains the powerful psychoactive alkaloid mescaline and plays an important role in shamanic and spiritual rituals.

It is not exactly known where echinopsis acrogona originated from. Some say the cactus was discovered in Bolivia although no species of it can be found in Bolivia today. Others think that the cactus’ origin is possibly Brazil or Argentina.

Echinopsis macrogona (trichocereus macrogonus) looks similar to the Peruvian Torch. The cactus grows in columns and can reach a height of 3 meters with an average diameter of 3-5cm, some specimens can grow even wider. The cactus has a typical frosty, blueish colour.

Growing trichocereus macrogonus is very easy and comparable to as if you were to grow the San Pedro cactus or the Peruvian Torch. Echinopsis macrogona is a very hardy and resilient cactus that only needs the bare necessities to grow well. It needs very little water and then only in the hottest growing season. In summer it is sufficient if you water it once per week. Just make sure that you allow the soil to dry out between watering and the cactus will thrive.

    Trichocereus Macrogona.
    Wauw, geweldige cutting. Mooi diep groen/blauwachtig grijs van kleur met regelmatige doornvorming. Ook de ribben zijn strak en regelmatig. Ziet er sterk uit, dan bedoel ik de levensvorm. Verwacht dat deze snel gaat bloeien. Opm. De species Macrogonus is officieel gedetermineerd as Trichocereus Peruvianus, hiervan zijn meerdere variëteiten in de natuur bekend.


    Echinopsis Macrogona root
    Echinopsis Macrogona on 15/06/2019, I saw a thick white root about 1 cm long, come out of the center of the cactus by digging it up (center of the star shape). About 2 weeks after planting (about 17 days). Maintained in wet soil at 5/10 of the humidity level of the sensor humidity.


    Looks great, hope it will root well
    Looks great, hope it will root well. I have had a couple of San pedro that would not root. ( I know this is not San Pedro) Hoping for the best. 4 stars just for looks alone at arrival. Looks really healthy.

    as the title says :)


    Very good service, nice staff, quick responses to questions. Shipping went fast and without problems. I'm happy with my new plant(s). The only remark I'd like to add is that I ordered two cacti - one echinopsis peruviana and one echinopsis macrogona. The both look very similar and they came together in the same box. So now I can't say which one is which. I think I somehow managed to keep them apart but I'm still not sure about it. I'd love if you could label them somehow. Maybe a rubber band could help. And you don't need to write the whole name, a discrete P for peruviana and M for macrogona would totally do it... Just a thought. Anyway: All in all very happy! Thnaks!
