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.

    Good quality cutting.
    The cutting i have received was from a good quality, as with any cacti i left it in the open air for 2 weeks to reduce the chance for mold and rot, than after 2 weeks it found a new home in dry cactus soil to make it develop a root system. Overall, a good quality cutting, good packaging and fast shipping.


    beautiful cactus
    I really liked the shape of the cactus. The delivery was fast and the cactus was in a very good condition. Well done!


    Bella Talea ma...
    Come detto è una bella Talea ma abbiamo riscontrato della muffa sulla cuticola che ricopriva la polpa ed addirittura in un punto stava attecchendo anche nella polpa stessa, con un operazione siamo riusciti a rimuoverla e metterla a dimora comunque, speriamo riesca a radicare e crescere ugualmente


    Stemmed variant
    I ordered two pieces of this cactus, both stemless and stemmed. Two hefty pieces (nearly 2,5 kg together) arrived in perfect condition within a week. Great customer service as always. Already made the order for Lophophora...


    Forme martienne non identifié
    Bien reçus propre et non contaminé. Je l’ai planter il prend et pousse très vite.... . Me tarde de goûter et voyager sous mescaline.


    It came moldy
    I love this plant and am trying to save it but it did come very moldy so lost about 1/3 of it


    San Pedro crested
    The cactus came in heavily infected with molds. Zamnesia said they were sorry to hear that and without hesitation proposed to send another one, or give me a coupon for another purchase. I chose for another cactus and it arrived soon, in perfect state! Thanks Zamnesia!


    Lo esperaba más grande. Aunque en cuanto a salud, llegó perfecto. Se plantó y está enraizando perfectamente. Es un cactus precioso. Como planta ornamental es precioso. No sé decir en cuanto al contenido de mescalina, puesto que no lo he comido.


    Mr. San Pedro
    I have received a huge chunk of healthy, vibrant San Pedro. Even after over a week in transit there is no mould or any damage. I am super happy and definitely will come back in the future. Good job, Zamnesia :)


    I am a beginner for what concerns cactus, but, really, very easy to grow: just choose the right soil, put the cactus in, nothing, water only on accasion; well, at least, with me, that works, I have been following Zamnesia advices from the blog. But you are in another time frame: unlike weed or mushs, when you changes in days or weeks, here, you just see nothing, it will take months for the roots to develop and only then the plant will grow I guess
