Which Other Cacti Can Crossbreed with Trichocereus Species

In the interests of science and amusement, we thought it might be useful to document all of the non-Trichocereus cacti which are known to successfully crossbreed with Trichocereus species. We’ll keep adding to this page over time, so do please tell us of any other useful information you might have and we’ll publish it here. Together, we can build this reference list into a genuinely handy resource for the more intrepid cactus cultivator! If you’d like a refresher on the plants of the genus, you might also enjoy our Trichocereus species guide.
