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