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.

    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 :)


    Aucun effet
    Il arrive en bon état mais aucune explication pour l’utilisation (notice) de plus ça ne fonctionne pas


    Great service! Fantastic cactus! Thank you !


    Gorgeous plant.
    The plant came as advertised: healthy and with a growing tip. I'm not planning on consuming it yet, I prefer bridgesii to that end. I dry them and always had a strong trip from merely 15cm of bridgesii. But this one I bought for the fun of collecting and the love of the shape


    magnifique cactus
    livraison ;embalage, tout ça c etait parfait et le cactus est magnifique moi je l ai replanté.


    Sehr schöner Kaktus
    Habe ein wirklich schönes Prachtexemplar erhalten, deutlich größer als laut Beschreibung. Die Schnittstelle war einwandfrei getrocknet und auch sonst war der Kaktus makellos. Bin noch dabei, ihn anwurzeln zu lassen, bin mir aber sicher, dass das gut klappen wird.


    Good quality, it will grow in April, still small to give a best review


    Bon service
