Trichocereus narvaecensis | Live plant

(syn. Echinopsis narvaecensis, Helianthocereus narvaecensis, Lobivia formosa subsp. tarijensis, Trichocereus schickendantzii, Trichocereus tarijensis)

Freaky Cacti is seriously pleased to be offering – the only very rarely available – Trichocereus narvaecensis, as live, well-rooted plants!

Trichocereus narvaecensis hails from around the Bolivian village of Narváez, located within the Tarija Department at one-thousand-eight-hundred-and-twenty-nine-metres above sea level. Considered by many to be a form of Trichocereus tarijensis (and by some, of Trichocereus shickendantzii), it’s also thought to be a close relative of Trichocereus bertramianus.

Distinctively-ribbed and clumping in form, narvaecensis is a medium-sized, deep-green-coloured cactus with yellow-tan-white spination (sometimes delightfully crowned with light-orange examples too). Reportedly (we’ve not had our own plants flower yet), narvaecensis produces beautiful blooms expressing red-pink-cream-white hues.

We’ve not been growing these plants for too long ourselves as of writing, but so far they seem to respond well when treated similarly to the majority of the Trichocereus genus. Grow them somewhere which receives a generous amount of sunlight, in a well-drained, mildly acidic to mildly alkaline soil mix (we generally use approximately equal parts soil and perlite). Water moderately during the growing season, but only as the top few centimetres of soil dries out completely. Avoid frosts and lightly fertilise two or three times per year and your plants should be happy in your garden, rewarding you with gorgeous growth for years to come!
