Trichocereus pachanoi ‘Parque de las Leyendas’ (cactus)
Trichocereus pachanoi is a South American cactus species used traditionally for divining purposes. Named after Professor Aberlardo Pachano who travelled with Dr. Rose, the original western collector, in 1918 (Trout, 2005). An upright species to 6 metres tall. Also an excellent grafting stock.
Parque de las Leyendas is located in the San Miguel district of Lima and was founded as the first Zoo of Peru. It is home to several mature Trichocereus specimens, some of which were collected on the Sacred Succulents field trips and given name starting with BK. These however, were collected by Chavin Herbalists in Peru.
Care and Cultivation of Trichocereus pachanoi ‘Parque de las Leyendas’
Keep Parque de las Leyendas in part-shade until large enough to deal with full-sun, which will depend on the increasing exposure you give the cactus. Once established, Trichocereus species can be watered most of the year in all climates, although they will cease to grow or slow right down over winter in colder areas. Fertilise regularly with fish emulsion/seaweed at half strength over the growing season.
