Trichocereus pachanoi var. 'LER' (10-12 in Tip cutting)
Grown by The Mallachts Plants And Your Plants Group's very own Michael Jackson! (aka Lee Jackson) :)
This is a NON-PC (Predominant Cultivar) Pachanoi, aka a "True Pachanoi"
LER stands for Legendary Ethnobotanical Resources, a now defunct Ethnobotanical supplier from back in the day. This is a beautiful and fat Pachanoi that has relatively small spines that are sometimes reddish at the tips. This is known to flower very readily, even at relatively low height! The one pictured is only around 2 ft and has tons of flowers!
Trichocereus pachanoi, or Echinopsis pachanoi - is native to the Andes region of Peru. It has been used in the Andes region for veterinary uses as well as a shamanic medicine for over 3,000 years. It is often confused with Trichocereus peruvianus, which we also carry. :)
Whenever I'm chopping down a ton of these I'm always wearing my HexArmor ThornArmor Cactus Gloves to protect my hands!
