|Full Description: Trichocereus pachanoi sp "Big Spine" This variety is similar to the species Trichocereus pachanoi linked below but with some differences in the growth; The overall girth or diameter of stems are very stoat averaging 8" up to 10"+ inches at the base, spines are longer especially on older growth which spines can average up to 1-1/2" inches long. The origin of this variety "Big Spine" is not entirely known and it is believed to be a species variety or variant from Peru. It was originally collected by us from an old cactus collection located nearby the nursery in Fallbrook, California. This variety was planted at least more than 50-60 years ago on an old property that was once a ranch and has since been subdivided and changed hands several times, so the current property owner does not know who planted this "Big Spine" variety or where it came from originally. This variety is an exact clone from that original plant.
