History

Lumberjack – Trichocereus bridgesii – Quite the backstory 🙂

Trichocereus bridgesii LUMBERJACK or LUMBERJACKUS is a rare and sought after Trichocereus that was found in a Lumberjack store in Sacramento by Joe Lev. Its actually an Echinopsis lageniformis with very distinct traits. It has a very typical double-pair spination and a fat body. This clone is known to flower abundantly and it is currently used by US breeder Misplant and Nitrogen.

Origin Story: “Here is the origin of the super hero know as ‘lumberjack” It never ceases to amaze me that my little joke has become common parlance in the ethnobot underground.

I went out to this bill collectors office in Rancho Cordova, CA to give up some blood money. Leaving I saw a big Lumberjack building supply store. I was fairly new at growing cacti, I think I was still looking for my first peruvianus, I probably just had a few pachanois and maybe my first WOH which was sold as a peruvianus, but really looks nothing like one. I go out to the garden area and spot what looked to me like a pachanoi but with wicked big spines. It was in a large plastic pot , had several columns about 3 ft high. I think I paid about $45 for it. …

As I learned more, I saw that it appears to be a peruvianus/bridgessi cross. Like a fat bridge or a peruvianus with less spines per pad. It’s a fast grower, but doesn’t seem to grow as tall as a pachanoi. It flowers occasionally, and once I got it to cross with a pachanoi. Sometimes the new growth has a beautiful blue color that love.

When I started trading it I gave it a fake latin name, “lumberjackius”, which people soon shortened to “lumberjackus” and then “lumberjack””

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.
