"Is this a real Pachanoi? Or a pachanot?  Am I suffering Pachanoia?
Pachanoia — Troutnot, the story of Trout's "PC" pach-a-nonsense 
See the 2,500 year old Chavin Indian stone carving? That is what San Pedro Cactus was (Trichocereus pachanoi) before the Internet came along - creating a virtual ocean of strangers meeting in blogs to share their opinions and spread misinformation. More...  Trichocereus pachanoi & peruvianus manifest many physical variations depending on genetics, age, and growing conditions. I know what San Pedros are from decades of experience growing them outdoors into huge stands. The particular "armchair expert" comparing photos from anonymous sources in the US and Bolivia has an agenda to undermine American growers, ebay sellers, etc.

Yes, It's all my fault. I wrote a negative review ridiculing Trout's San Pedro book. He was so angry he set out to get even with me. Don't believe that statement? You can see for yourself because he posts on an Australian blog whining about me...showing that 10 years later his ego is still hurt. He's humiliated because I pointed out that his book displays a cover photo of what everyone sells as San Pedro. His attempts to discredit that well known Trichocereus pachanoi resulted in "friends" finding strange looking variations in other coutries such as Bolivia that he now claims are the "real San Pedro."

Trout now ignores the fact that pachanoi is pronounced "pah-CHAN-oi" because it was discovered in the Chan Chan Valley of Peru; NOT Bolivia. Chan Chan is the site of the worlds largest ancient mud brick ruins.  FYI, recently a botanist posted an essay brushing aside Trout's "PC" nonsense.  Trichocereus Pachanoi (photo) was, and still is, what its famous for - no matter what misinformation Trout's hurt ego dreams up. The things Trout and his "friends" say about me on the Australian blog are truly pathetic. Such activity proves my review 10 years ago was right on target. Check it out...
First, don't worry too much; 99.5% of winter shipped cacti get through OK.  But neither should you order when the USA is frozen in one of those dramatic blizzards.
Daily low temperatures above 26 degrees F are safe. Short dips to lower temps are OK as long as they are not sustained. Check the 5-day weather forecast in your region before ordering.  We can do a shipping "Hold" until you feel it is safe to ship. Weather Map: http://www.weather.gov/forecasts/graphical/sectors/
