View Full Version : San Pedro Cactus?
my friend recently found a cactus, which he says looks exactly like my san pedro cacti, only ten feet tall. i told him it might be and that he should take a picture, but last night he brought over seven feet of it, it is huge. i told him he should not have done this until we knew it was surely san pedro, but it doesn't matter now. it does look exactly like mine, it has 7 fat lobes, 4-6 spines, and is that green san pedro color, except there are little furry flower like things growing on it. are these just premature flowers? but i always thought they were supposed to have petals. i would be stoked if this was san pedro, but i would like to hear what you guys have to say. and again, i know this was a stupid thing my friend did, and believe me, i let him know. but even if it is not san pedro, it would still be a cool cactus to grow.
for some reason, i can't post any pictures.
San pedro cactus can grow up to 5 meters (16ft) And peruvian torch cactus can grow up to 7 meters, so you never know, you could be in luck!
Couldn't you upload it to photobucket and post a link? I'd like to see it.
well what about the flowers? i thought that san pedro flowers had petals. these ones are more like cotton balls. are they just pre-mature? because i know they are supposed to be fully flowered in july, and it's only late may.
Do the furry flowers look like the new growth on this specimen (lycaeum)?
they look exactly like those little furry ones in the pics. thanks. i guess now is a good time to begin an extraction.
yea seems like your friend had a good find and you will prob get some mescaline outta it but IMO it is a shame he just cut it down right as it was about to flower, cactus take a while to flower and when they do it is pretty kool/ beautiful. if that was someones cactus even if it was just for ornamental purposes im sure they are awfully pissed
jam uh weezy
^San Pedro commonly flower even on cuttings that have been separated from the original plant.
OP. I really hope your friend isn't stealing cacti from someones yard.
