Care and Cultivation of Trichocereus peruvianus ‘Icaro’

Keep Icaro 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.

1 cactus 80-150mm tall. Some spotting around the base and higher up.

    Beautiful shape, much prettier than normal T. Peruvianus. An excellent addition to the collection. Arrived on time, rooted and well packed- no exception to what I have come to expect of Herbalistics.

    Interesting V. of the Trichocereus peruvianus. Very healthy, blemish free, great little root system. Came very well packed.. 1000% better than the terible Shaman Australis Botanicals cactus!

    This is the most beautiful trichocereus ever with its deep blue color and blood red spines! Mine has grown 10cm since early august which I did not expect considering its great girth. All my research on internet shows that this variation fits the definition of true peruvianus which just makes it my favorite cactus !
