This seedling is a real beauty. A cross of Trichocereus peruviana MG Red Spine and Trichocereus peruviana Icaros DNA.

  • Pure Trichocereus peruviana
  • These plants are sent bare root to protect the body of the cacti and avoid any damage in transit.
  • Each plant will have a plant passport attached, a new UK requirement.

Note: He is overwintering so a bit dehydrated, he will plump up nicely after a good drink in Spring.

Note 2: The name given to these seedlings is in no way a genetic reference for a clone or anything, I am generating cool cactus names to separate out the seedling listings. If you want to keep the name, it will be yours to do with as you please.

The white stuff on the plant, Diatomaceous Earth (DE), is an organic pesticide that we use to protect plants over winter.

Introduction

This listing is for the seedling pictured.

Growing Requirements:

Trichocereus are relatively easily grown in the UK, especially due to the fact that they do not require massive amounts of sunlight. As most cacti grown in the UK, they are best grown in a greenhouse or conservatory (grow tents are also used for younger plants), South facing is a distinct advantage.

Watering

Watering from Spring (April) to the beginning of Autumn (End September). Depending on what kind of summer we get will depend on how frequently you need to water, but, less is better with cacti. During the winter months, little to no watering is required or the roots could rot (they do not like to be wet for long periods).

Substrate

In warmer climates, you could go for a more nutrient-rich mixture (50% organic / 50% inorganic). But, in the UK, it is best to err more on the side of inorganic (60% – 70% inorganic) to ensure the pot is drained quickly.
