History

Trichocereus cordobensis is an extremely interesting plant that probably belongs into the range of the species Trichocereus scopulicola. This species is very rare in nature and there only were a few collections of it. When Friedrich Ritter discovered the species Trichocereus scopulicola, he labeled his collection FR991 and almost all Scops on the market go back to that one collection in the 50s. Now back to Trichocereus cordobensis. It is not an accepted name and there is not a description for it. The city Cordoba is in Argentina, which is far way from Bolivia where Trichocereus scopulicola is endemic. It probably came from an institution called NMCR, which distributed seeds and cacti in the past 20 years. They are the source of many interesting plants, including one very spiny type of Scop that was not identical with Ritter´s original FR991. And that is probably the original source of this plant.

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.
