30 Bolivian Torch Cactus seeds, Trichocereus bridgesii, Achuma, Ore
Perennial cactus native to Bolivia. Trichocereus bridgesii was temporarily called Echinopsis lageniformis, but now belongs to Trichocereus again. It is a very fast growing columnar cactus from the high deserts of Bolivia. Used by native shaman due to psychoactive alkaloids in the cactus itself.
Hardy to Zones 8 to 12, withstands light frost, but usually grown as a potted plant and brought indoors for the winter. Avoid water during winter dormancy. Avoid frost.
Cacti prefer full sun, well draining soils and light water. The flowers are white and huge, with long enough spines to hurt.
I prefer a mix of half sand with half commercial cactus mix; place the seeds on top, lightly cover with a thin layer of perlite, and add a humidity dome during the germination phase.
30 seeds per packet, Open Pollinated, Untreated, NO GMOs.
