Trichocereus bridgesii
bolivian torch cactus - penis plant seeds

Trichocereus bridgesii, syn. Echinopsis lageniformis, called the bolivian torch cactus or penis plant grows with bluish-green stems. The stems grow 2-5 m tall and with 15-20 cm in diameter. The honey-coloured spines can reach 6-7 cm length. Also called San Pedro by the Incas.

There is no pre-treatment of the seeds required.

The seeds are sown in mineral-based cat litter (no clumping litter) or perlite (germ-free) in plastic-pots. Please sow the seeds on the mineral soil. Bigger seeds need to be covered with the mineral soil, small seeds should remain on the surface.

Then put the plastic pot in a zip-lock bag - with a pot size of 6 cm , a zip-lock bag of size 12 x 17 cm is recommended . Fill in the zip-lock bag as much tap water with a few drops of universal fertilizer, so that after the absorption of the substrate a few mm of water remain on the bottom. 

Location: on the windowsill or in a small greenhouse in partial shade, daytime temperatures at about 73-83 F, somewhat lower at night at 68-72 F. 

Price is for 15 seeds
