Trichocereus ‘HB05’ (cactus)
$16.50 – $30.25
Trichocereus are South American cacti with many being used traditionally for divining purposes. Hybridisation occurs readily as individuals do not or very rarely self-pollinate. An upright species to 6 metres tall.
Trichocereus HB05 is a Herbalistics selection from a batch of Trichocereus ‘Super Pedro’ x ‘Psycho0’ seedlings; very attractive with short spines, a rough feel to the skin and good disease resistance in the subtropics. Fast strong growth and hardy. A sister of HB02.
Care and Cultivation of Trichocereus HB05
Keep in part-shade until large enough to deal with full-sun, which will depend on the increasing exposure you give the cactus. Once established, Trichocereus species can be watered most of the year in all climates, although they will cease to grow or slow right down over winter in colder areas. Fertilise regularly with fish emulsion/seaweed at half strength over the growing season.
