Trichocereus bridgesii (Bolivian Torch Cactus) are quite unique plants within the San Pedro family. They tend to be very spikey without much uniform spine formations, spikes literally come out in random angles. It really makes for an interesting plant.

Locality

Trichocereus bridgesii are native to Bolivia (duh) and Argentina.

History

Tr. bridgesii was first introduced to the Western world by a German botanist Friedrich Ritter who studied various cactus species in South America. He then named the species after his close friend, the British consul in Bolivia, Alan Bridges.

They quickly gained popularity over the years and have become statement pieces in many homes across the world.

    My two bridgesii/langeniformis cuttings arrived quickly after ordering, with timely and reassuring communication in the interim. The plants look great and well cared for, and I'm looking forward to them settling into their new home as the weather warms up. Couldn't ask for more!

Steps For Rooting

Once the cut is received, place it around 1/2 inch to 1 inch in a pot of substrate. I use wooden kebab skewers to hold up the piece. Water lightly and you should start getting new root growth within a few weeks to a few months depending on conditions.

An alternative way would be to stick them in perlite and wait for them to root, once roots form you can re-pot.

All plants sold are strictly for garden / ornamental purposes.We are here to cultivate these beautiful plants and spread them as far as we can, nothing outside of growing (all things related to growing) will be tollerated.
