Origin and Habitat

Trichocereus Bridgesii, also known as Echinopsis Lageniforms hails mainly out of the Bolivian mountains but grows pretty much throughout Bolivia (Tarija, Santa Cruz, Chochabamba, LA PAZ, & Chuquisaca).

Trichocereus bridgesii has been renamed to Echinopsis lageniformis by Friedrich and Rowley during their 1974 merger of the genus Echinopsis. The name Echinopsis bridgesii was already taken by a clumping Echinopsis species from Bolivia, which is a totally different plant and should not be confused with Trichocereus bridgesii.

UK Growing

In the UK, bridgesii's are quite popular due to their hardiness and can handle our low temp during winter (around 5C before bringing inside, although, adults can go lower). Flowers produce after around 10 years of growth, so, patience is required. Bridgesii differ in terms of humidity requirements, they do not tolerate high humidity very well and can form rot if left in high humidity for long periods.

All our cacti are shipped bare root to protect the cacti, please ensure you have suitable substrate and a pot for your new dude.

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.
