Trichocereus ‘TPQC x TPM’ (grafted cactus)

$214.50

Out of stock

Description

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.

This cristate clone is a TPQC x TPM. The TPQC is short for T. pachanoi ‘quasi-cristata’ and is a T. pachanoi type that grew crested after an apparent snail attack. TPM stands for Trichocereus peruvianus ‘monstrose’. A great clumping Trichocereus crest that makes a beautiful feature plant.

Care and Cultivation

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. Try to limit overhead watering as it can cause rot between the layers of growth in cold or humid conditions. Otherwise quite hardy.
