A peruvianus cross pollination of DAWSONS#1 and ICARO. A seed cross from Australian breeder Rodni Kisar.

A highly desired, very blue peruvianus, Dawsons#1 originated from and was named after Dawsons Garden in Bendigo VIC. An Australian clone and the first of the Dawsons named peruvianus clones. A very worthy specimen.

Icaro is a South American cactus collected at 2500m above sea level near Matucana, Peru and used traditionally for divining purposes. Icaro is described by the collector of these seeds, Icaro’s DNA, as Trichocereus peruvianus var. matucana.

Icaro displays a strong blue glaucous colour with strong dark brown spines. An extremely attractive cactus with a good disease resistance.

A hybrid is formed when crossing two genetically different species with each other. Most hybrids are manmade however some are natural.
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.

Every seed packet is hand counted, not weighed, and is guaranteed to contain at least the number of seeds specified, however human error can occur and please don’t hesitate to contact us if there are any discrepancies. These seeds are fresh, either SAB nursery grown or purchased from a reputable trusted breeder.
