"Is this a real Pachanoi? Or a pachanot?  Am I suffering Pachanoia?
Pachanoia — Troutnot, the story of "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 Pedro 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. A botanist posted an essay brushing aside this "PC" nonsense.  Trichocereus Pachanoi (photo) still is what its famous for.

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/
