Chris and a San Pedro cactus

My Favorite Plant: San Pedro Cactus

In Blog, Feature, Houseplants, Winter by Samantha Karsten

The latest video in our My Favorite Plant series is live, we’ve got a tall guy talking about a tall plant. Meet Chris and his favorite, Echinopsis pachanoi, also known as the San Pedro cactus.

This large columnar cactus would thrive by a south-facing window, and rarely needs watering.

Chris is a seasonal Facilities Assistant, and you might see him building new wood plant tables, helping with greenhouse maintenance, or telling stories about Grateful Dead concerts. In the summer, he migrates to Twin Ochards, which is one of our local perennial vendors.
