Trichocereus bridgesii ‘SS02’ x Trichocereus bridgesii ‘Wowie’ | Live plant

We’re pleased to offer this great cactus hybrid, Trichocereus bridgesii ‘SS02’ x Trichocereus bridgesii ‘Wowie’! Live, rooted plants.

‘SS02’ is a much-coveted strain of Trichocereus bridgesii (syn. Echinopsis lageniformis, ‘Achuma’, ‘Bolivian Torch’), originating from America’s venerable Sacred Succulents. One of our favourite columnar Trichocereus species, bridgesii can reach up to six metres tall, forming blue-green stems of up to twenty centimetres diameter which branch from the plant’s base. An extremely distinctive plant,with formidable spines which can reach up to ten centimetres in length. Closely-related to Trichocereus pachanoi and Trichocereus peruvianus (‘Peruvian Torch’), bridgesii really is a beautiful cactus!

‘Wowie’ is a less well known – but equally desirable – Trichocereus bridgesii clone, bringing some fresh genetics into the mix!

This cool hybrid grows easily from seed outside in USDA Hardiness Zones 8-11, or in most climate zones indoors or under glass. Sow in mildly acidic to mildly alkaline soil, progressing from light shade to full to partial sun as the cacti mature. Transplant into larger containers or the ground after the first year or two. Let the soil totally dry out before watering and fertilise every two weeks to one month over the spring and summer growing season.
