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 bridg 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””

“E. colossus: cutting BBG # 66.0159 Ritter, Bolivia 2800 meters elevation. Equals T. colossus.

Seed collected off big, beautiful flowering plants at the BBG 1995-98. Older growth has one long two inch central spine, (shown in some pictures). All three of my rare plants at the BBG are now deceased but are now growing in my yard. Uncommon to rare in collections.“

UK Growing

In the UK, Trichocereus 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 8 to 10 years of growth, so, patience is required. Trichocereus 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.
