Trichocereus peruvianus is a South American cactus species used traditionally for divining purposes. Collected at 2500m above seas level in the Matucana Valley, Peru. An upright species to 6 metres tall with blue glaucous skin.

Cochao is a Trichocereus peruvianus/santaensis collected in the Ancash region of Peru.

These are 150-200mm tip cuttings taken from a cristate seedling, which is pictured after cutting.

Care and Cultivation of Trichocereus peruvianus ‘Cochao’

Keep Cochao 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.
