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 macrogonus - wunderschön
    Der Macrogonus - wie ich ihn erhalten habe - ist ein blau-grüner Kaktus mit sehr kleinen Stacheln, was mir sehr entgegenkommt. (Stacheln sind - für mich - das einzig unerfreuliche an Kakteen.) Da der Steckling - ich habe den kleinen mit 11 cm - nicht 'on stock' war, habe ich eine Verfügbarkeitsmeldung eingerichtet & schon 1- 2 Tage danach war sowohl dieser als auch drei weitere, vorher nicht verfügbare Stecklinge wieder lieferbar. Benachrichtigungen hierzu habe ich für alle erhalten. Die Sendung wurde wieder sehr schnell angeliefert. Der Kaktus war - das konnte selbst ein Anfänger wie ich gut erkennen - erst geschnitten worden und somit ganz frisch (optimal bei so einem Steckling). Die Schnittstelle war schon vollständig abgetrocknet - Zamnesianer sind halt einfach Profis. So bestäubte ich noch die Schnittfläche mit Wurzelaktivator & konnte ihn dann direkt eintopfen. Absolute Kaufempfehlung. TS

    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.
