San Pedro Flowering in Pots

27 April 2010 No Comment

I’m often asked whether San Pedros flower as well in pots as they do in the ground. While most plants do better in the ground, San Pedros do flower and can look magnificent in a pot. They are a great patio or deck plant. Here’s a few photos to illustrate that point.

As you can see with this first photo of a San Pedro, Trichocereus Pachanoi, they can flower profusely when in a pot. This plant in kept outside in Melbourne on a North facing patio.

The key is to ensure they gets lots to drink, but aren’t always wet and that they get a good dose of organic fertiliser. I think pellets work best.
