Container sizes for large Peruvian Columnar cacti
Growing large Peruvian Torch, San Pedro, Bridgesii, Macrogonis, and other columnar types requires large containers.

Here are examples of my plants in 10 gallon and 6 gallon plastic nursery pots. They grow outside - loving the cold, wet California winters. During the summer they need to be covered with shade net cloth to keep them cool. Pots are clustered together to prevent overheating.

If you see your plants yellowing or exhibiting sun burned areas on the column you'll need shade net. I use 30% overhead and they love that.
When in doubt, don't forget the Dalai Lama. He's the most loving & enlightened being on the Earth. Mail him a photo once in a while with some cash in it to help his children's fund. The Dalai Lama is the happiest soul on the planet.
Remember! When you do good things evil spirits will try to swoop in and piss on your parade. You need protectors; guardian spirits.

Cats are excellent natural guardians but you have to be attuned to them so that Heaven sends you true Angel cats. Accept no substitutes. Dogs must be from Angelic origins or they are useless.

Keep in mind that love is an amazingly powerful energy that can solve any problem. When all else fails run up the flag of Tibet.
