Bit confused about the HB02, my 2012 records indicate it is "spiny scop" x bridgesii, which I had always assumed was from seeds from my cross done at end of 2005, since that is the name I distributed seeds as. Swapped a few hundred with darcy. Not "Super Pedro x psycho0", because the spiny scop (ex-GardenWorld) is certainly distinct from my Super Pedro in it's epidermis and spination. bridgesii pollen donor was absolutely NOT psycho0.
darcy did a "scopulicola x bridgesii" using the same bridgesii pollen that I sent him. From memory his mum was a "spineless scop", but he has deleted his photo.
At the time we made these crosses, we were not aware of anybody intentionally making any scop x bridge crosses.
TrichoSeriousEthnobotany also has it as "spiny scop" x bridgesii. This clone is a Herbalistics.com.au selection from a batch of hybrid seed from Trichocereus bridgesii and a spiny T. scopulicola (Super Pedro), very attractive with a glacous/blue skin in most situations. T. bridgesii is the staminate parent. Fast growing and hardy." ~ Taken from Herbalistics.com.au https://theoldtrichoseriousethnobotany.blogspot.com.au/2012/02/trichocereus-hb02.html
Now Herbalistics has it described as Super Pedro x psycho0, as well as HB03, HB05, HB07.
(It is important to note that in some descriptions it says Super Pedro x psycho0, others it says psycho0 x Super Pedro but then indicates that bridgesii is the staminate parent, i.e. pollen donor.) The clone HB02 is a Herbalistics selection from a batch of Trichocereus ‘Super Pedro’ x ‘Psycho0’ seedlings. http://herbalistics.com.au/product/trichocereus-hb02-cactus/ The HB03 clone is a Herbalistics selection from a batch of hybrid seed from Trichocereus bridgesii ‘Psycho0’ x ‘Super Pedro’; very attractive with a glaucous/blue skin in most situations. T. bridgesii is the staminate parent. http://herbalistics.com.au/product/trichocereus-hb03-plant/ 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 growing and hardy. A sister of HB02. http://herbalistics.com.au/product/trichocereus-hb05-plant/ The HB07 clone is a Herbalistics selection from a batch of Trichocereus ‘Super Pedro’ x Trichocereus bridgesii ‘Psycho0’ seedlings we grew in the mid 2000s. http://herbalistics.com.au/product/trichocereus-hb07-cactus/
this HB07 pic is actually named spinyscopxbridgesii2 http://herbalistics.com.au/spinyscopxbridgesii2/
Due to consumers enthusiasm for named clones, I'd imagine "Super Pedro x psycho0" would sell much better than "spiny scop x bridgesii".
BUT if it is grown from seeds from the cross that I did in 2005, neither Super Pedro or psycho0 was used in the breeding.
So, did anyone make a Super Pedro x psycho0 cross in the mid 2000's?
Anybody else got HB02 down as spiny scop x bridgesii or did I screw up?
