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.

    Echinopsis macrogona
    Der kaktus kam gut verpackt an schnelle Lieferung Versand top ich werde wieder bei euch bestellen.


    Trichocereus macrogonus
    Arrivato in ottime condizioni, prima del previsto veramente bello


    Ottime condizioni
    La pianta è arrivata velocemente ed in ottime condizioni. Purtroppo era con altri 3 cactus, penso di aver capito quali sono i vari cactus che ho comprato ma non ne sono sicuro, dei cartellini per ogni pianta avrebbero aiutato.


    Super nice Cuttling, very healthy and the cut is fully healed.


    Otro para la colección
    La llegada como siempre perfecta. Lo tuve una semana a la sombra en su nuevo espacio y luego lo sembré. Enraíza rápido y ya está creciendo. Debo apuntar que tiene muchas más espinas y grandes de las que aparecen en la foto. El color es similar al del peyote, verde azulado.


    Another beautiful cactus to add to my collection, many thanks to the good people at Zamnesia!


    Cela fait maintenant bientôt 3 ans que j'ai acheté 2 Echinopsis macrogona en taille S (10-11cm, donc une fois plantée, il n'y a que 3-4 cm de la bouture qui sortent de la terre). J'ai suivis à la lettre les conseils de Zamnesia pour faire pousser ces boutures et franchement tout s'est implacablement passé. Les boutures ont commencer a pousser très vite. Aujourd'hui mes cactus font 60cm de haut et n'arrêtent pas de grandir de jour en jour. Comme d'hab depuis de longues années Zamnesia est vraiment au top It has now been almost 3 years since I bought 2 Echinopsis macrogona in size S (10-11cm, so once planted, only 3-4 cm of the cutting come out of the ground). I followed Zamnesia's advice to the letter on growing these cuttings and frankly everything went smoothly. The cuttings started to grow very quickly. Today my cacti are 60cm high and keep growing day by day. As usual for many years Zamnesia is really on top

    Top Cacti
    Einer meiner San Pedros mittlerer Größe wurde problemlos ausgetauscht, da Jener in dem Moment vergriffen war, habe ich diesen hier ausgewählt und wurde nicht enttäuscht. Definitiv einer der schönsten in meiner Echinopsis-Sammlung. Kam sehr gesund und bläulich glitzernd an, hat unheimlich schnell gewurzelt und befindet sich inzwischen unter LED mit im Growzelt. Vielen Dank Zamni :)
