San Pedro: The Sacred Succulent

"...An hour and a half later, I was sitting in my study, looking intently at a small glass vase. The vase contained only three flowers-a full-blown Belie of Portugal rose, shell pink with a hint at every petal's base of a hotter, flamier hue; a large magenta and cream-colored carnation; and, pale purple at the end of its broken stalk, the bold heraldic blossom of an iris. Fortuitous and provisional, the little nosegay broke all the rules of traditional good taste. At breakfast that morning I had been struck by the lively dissonance of its colors. But that was no longer the point. I was not looking now at an unusual flower arrangement. I was seeing what Adam had seen on the morning of his creation-the miracle, moment by moment, of naked existence. "

By Paul Gardner
"Its probably safe to say that many of you reading this have probably been made aware of the religious and magical powers of the genus Trichocereus through the Internet. The speed with which "information" can be spread from one corner of the world to the other is truly miraculous and would no doubt amaze and appall the shamans of old who traditionally would pass this information on through an arduous apprenticeship with hand picked students who just may or may not make the final cut."

San Pedro for the Masses - A Scratch on the Surface of the Marvelous Trichocereus Pachanoi
By Gnosis
Among all my plants, my pachanoi come first in my heart, and so here on these electrons you see before you, I try to give something back to these lovely organisms by helping you propagate and care for their kind. Keep in mind that my way of doing things is not necessarily the best, itís just whatís worked for me. Also, these tips should work just as well for trichocereus peruvianus.
