A pach. cross pollination of a pach X and JUULS GIANT.

A fast-growing columnar cactus native to the Andes Mountains. Its stems are light to dark green, although occasionally glaucous, growing up to 15cm in diam. with an average 5-8 ribs. The white or gray areoles can produce numerous spines, that can be up to 2cm long or more, although typically shorter in cultivated varieties they can sometimes be almost spineless. This seems to depend on the environmental conditions grown in.
Pach’s normally grow to 3–6m tall and have multiple branches, usually extending from the base. The areoles are spaced evenly alongside the ribs and are between 1-2cm apart.

The Tom Juul’s Giant or simply Juul’s Giant is a cultivar of T.pach that is known for fat stems and almost non-existent spines. The Californian butcher Tom Juul sourced this beautiful clone from Peru and had a huge plant of it in his garden. He donated cuttings which found their way in the Sacred Succulents and Sticky Business nurseries.

With cross pollination the mother plant is the first name, and the father plant is the second. The mother is the plant whose flower was pollenated, and the fruit ripens on, and the father is the pollen donor. When the crossing plants, in most cases, the resulting offspring comes closer to the mother than to the father. However, there are a lot of exceptions to this and sometimes, the genes of the father are simply more dominant.

Note: Orders containing cuttings may not be shipped the Tuesday following payment received as per usual procedure. This is due to the cactus being cut to order and dry weather is required to ensure rot does not occur.

IMPORTANT: Your cutting needs to be calloused before it is ready for planting. Keep the cutting dry for a week or two until the cut end has formed a callus, you can use a little sulphur on the end to help with drying and to protect it from rot, but it isn't a necessity. Once calloused you can plant your cutting. The process works any time of year, but cactus cuttings potted in late summer to early autumn root the fastest. Fill an adequately sized pot with specialty cactus soil or mix your own from scratch with extra grit added, coarse sand, perlite, scoria, or pumice gives the soil the appropriate drainage and aeration. Plant the calloused cutting in the prepared potting mix and top dress to prevent soil loss. Once potted, keep dry, do not water! Most cactus cuttings root in four to six weeks.
