Trichocereus bridgesii ‘Lumberjack’ x Trichocereus peruvianus | ~30cm rooted plant
Arkham’s Botanical proudly offers limited stocks of these young and healthy Trichocereus bridgesii ‘Lumberjack’ x Trichocereus peruvianus cactus hybrids. Grown organically from seed in sunny Spain, these fast-growing and much sought-after cacti are offered as bare-rooted plants.
The extremely popular ‘Lumberjack’ clone (aka ‘Lumberjackus’) is commonly considered to be a gorgeous and fast-growing Trichocereus bridgesii species, although it has been suggested it may have been crossed with a peruvianus somewhere along the way. Consequently, ‘Lumberjack’ usually produces fat bridgesii-type plants with a dark-blue-green colour that display the species’ typical double-pair spination. It can also produce both short-spined and more traditional bridgesii-type cacti. This clone was originally discovered lurking in a high street hardware store in California.
An attractive columnar cactus originally found growing in Peru, peruvianus (‘Peruvian Torch’) is sister to the famous ‘San Pedro’, or Trichocereus pachanoi, and ‘Bolivian Torch’, or Trichocereus bridgesii. It’s often confused with the related Trichocereus cuzcoensis and is a wonderful blue-green coloured cactus.
Peruvianus has been used by humans for literally thousands of years, for example, as an ornamental, for religious practice and in traditional medicine (human and veterinary). Like many other columnar Trichocereus species, it can handle far lower temperatures than many other cacti and is consequently easy to grow indoors and outdoors in several climate zones.
Averaging around twelve inches of new growth per year (in ideal conditions), this gorgeous Trichocereus hybrid will reward you for years to come, provided you can offer it a little fertile, free-draining soil and regular watering!
Grown organically in the Spanish sunshine!
