Hybrid

Freaky Cacti offers an enviable range of Trichocereus cacti hybrid varieties, grown from those we’ve collected over many years and sourced from dedicated, expert growers. Such growers create and maintain species and cultivar hybrids to try to either birth a strain that bears desirable characteristics of both parent plants (for example, appearance, disease-resistance, fast growth rate, flavour, etc.), or simply to breed a genetically-distinct plant.

If you’re new to the world of plant hybrids, they’re named as follows: ‘Mother plant’ (from which the fruit and seeds developed) x ‘Father plant’ (from which the pollen used in the cross originated). Real-life examples of these include Mentha aquatica x Mentha spicata (‘Peppermint’), the various Psychotria hybrids (such as Psychotria ‘Nexus’) and Trichocereus pachanoi x Trichocereus bridgesii ‘Tig’.
