Some San Pedro arms detached themselves. It’s better that it happened, as they’ll root and make new plants. I haven’t had as much time to tend to the cacti, so a little self-pruning was called for, at least from the mother plant they fell from.
The common #SanPedroCactus aka PC #Pachanoi, is a vigorous grower. They’re great as landscape plants and grafting stocks. They will even suffice for other practices... so I’ve read, and so I’ve been told. One thing to take into account is that they don’t really like for it to dip below 26°F (-4°C), especially for prolonged periods. Mine get some protection from old oaks, but I still cover some of their tips from time to time.
The snowstorm in December had no negative impact, as it was only around 32°. As for our recent 20° nights, a few of the tips were probably damaged, and will regrow multiple limbs from the damaged areas. Not great, but really not so bad. It will just give me more smaller plants to propagate.
