It is a real pleasure to offer these monster Trichocereus peruviana (Peruvian Torch) from Matucuna, Peru. This particular peruvianus is the most sought-after genetics around. These particular cuts have been grown in full sun and have a beautiful glaucous appearance.
These cuts are bloody massive and chonky.
Please note, the spines have been compressed due to travel. Over time, the spines will reform into their normal uniform formation.
Trichocereus peruvianus Matucana is one of the most sought after types. Matucana is the type locality of Trichocereus peruvianus, which means that in Matucana you can find the most typical plants according to the description. The description was originally made by the Americans Britton & Rose, and the described a plant that must have been somewhere between Trichocereus peruvianus and Trichocereus cuzcoensis. And yes, Trichocereus cuzcoensis plays a part in the history of Trichocereus peruvianus as well. Both are so closely related and exist with many intermediate forms in between that Britton & Rose´s decision to keep them separated from each other was not regarded without criticism.
