San Pedro Crested (Echinopsis Pachanoi Cristata)

We are happy to be able to offer the San Pedro Crested (Echinopsis Pachanoi Cristata), a really intriguing and fascinating variety of the San Pedro cactus. The San Pedro Crested (Echinopsis Pachanoi Cristata)is distinguished by the presence of several “growth points” throughout its body, as opposed to the original San Pedro, which develops from a single point into the distinctive “organ pipe” form.

With each of these growth points developing at various rates at times, the Crested San Pedro forms an absolutely stunning cactus specimen that can grow into the trendiest shapes depending on the cutting.

The Crested San Pedro cuttings we provide are 10-11cm in size and may be potted in the same manner as its phallic-shaped nephew. Watching the cuttings grow and then seeing what forms they will become makes cactus growth much more entertaining and enjoyable with the Crested San Pedro, which is available only from the Zamnesia online store!


The Crested San Pedro, like the regular Echinopsis pachanoi, is relatively simple to cultivate and can even endure a colder climate as long as temperatures do not go below 12°C. Simply use a fertile and well-draining potting mix. When watering the San Pedro, begin by thoroughly wetting the cactus and then allow it to dry between waterings. San Pedro can withstand a bit more water than other cactus and isn’t as finicky as some other cacti kinds. Some gardeners relate cultivating the San Pedro to growing other “normal plants” since it isn’t that much different or more challenging.

The San Pedro cactus enjoys some sun, just like us, but not too much of it, particularly during the hot summer months. It’s preferable to maintain the cactus in some mild shade to avoid getting sunburned. It is recommended that you assist the cactus to undergo dormancy in the winter by withholding water and nutrients.

The San Pedro, like other cactus, is prone to mould and fungus, although it fared better here than others. Nonetheless, you should monitor your watering frequency and moisture levels to keep mould and fungal development at bay.
