Trichocereus bridgesii ‘Urban Tribes’ Clone

This particular clone originated out of the Urban Tribes Garden. The creator, Mark Camo began propagating San Pedro in 1991, following a visit to South America and time in a small village located a two days’ walk from Tacna. A shaman from this village gifted the Urban Tribes founder three of their favourite clones, which have been propagated ever since. The village shaman also shared seeds from their favourite plants.

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.

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.

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.
