An upright species to 6 metres tall with blue glaucous skin. The Icaro Monstrose is originally grown from Trichocereus peruvianus ‘Icaro’ seed and shows segmented/monstrose growth.

Care and Cultivation of Trichocereus peruvianus ‘Matucana Sausage Cactus’

Keep Matucana Sausage Cactus 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.
