Peruvian Torch Cactus Plant Cuttings

Peruvian Torch cactus, Echinopsis peruviana or as it was formerly known Trichocerus peruvianus, is a fast-growing columnar cactus native to the western slope of the Andes in Peru. It is also sometimes known as Peruvian Fence Post. Its entheogenic value is very much akin to that of the traditional and endangered peyote cacti, and it has been suggested that the Native American Church and Peyote Way Church of God establish plantations of peruvianus to guard against the serious depletion of wild-growing peyote.
The plant is bluish-green in colour, with frosted stems, and 6-8 broadly rounded ribs; it has large, white flowers. It can grow up to 7 meters tall, with stems up to 20 cm in diameter; it is fully erect to begin with, but later possibly arching over, or even becoming prostrate. Groups of 6-8 honey-colored to brown rigid spines, up to 4 cm in length, with most about 1 cm, are located at the nodes, which are evenly spaced along the ribs, up to approximately 2.5 cm apart.
A short-spined variant which is nearly identical in appearance to its relative, the San Pedro cactus, is known. It is therefore possible that many misidentified plants are being sold (both as Peruvian Torch and as San Pedro), but since local variations as well as hybrids do exist (both cultivated and natural), this will obviously make proper identification difficult.
It contains a number of psychoactive alkaloids, in particular the well-studied chemical mescaline, which it contains at higher levels than those of the San Pedro cactus (although not as high as peyote, as sometimes is stated wrongly).
