What is special about San Pedro?
Unlike other columnar cactus, San Pedro is relatively unspined, increasing its usefulness around patios and walkways, in pots and even indoors in a sunny spot. San Pedro (in the larger pot) does well in a container garden or on a patio.
Is it hard to grow San Pedro Cactus?
San Pedro is a popular South American cactus. It is one of the easiest (if not the easiest) ethnobotanical plants to grow. If gifted a cutting, all you need to do is plant it in the right kind of soil and leave it be. From there, it will grow roots and before you know it, it will be putting on new emerald green growth.
