Trichocereus identification- PC clone traits
prandz posted a question in Cactus & Succulent IdentificationHey guys was just hoping for some help identifying these trichocereus cacti. I believe they are all t.pachanoi but I was also hoping if someone can help me determine whether they are the PC (predominant cultivar) clone. I have heard that PC clones have upward facing areoles but it seems that many trichocereus share this characteristic. I have uploaded both side and top views of the cacti in question to help with identification. Sorry I am quite new to this but if anyone could share any tips on identifying PC clones it would be very much appreciated. Much love <3
Repotting Trichocereus Bridgesii
netsuj posted a topic in Cacti & SucculentsI have some 5 year old trichocereus bridgesii that I sadly haven't repotted in 4 years. The tallest ones in the picture are about 53cm. This year will be a good year for them because not only will they get a new large pot (or pots) but they get to leave the 4 year old store-bought cactus soil mix I used at the time! I'm thinking 1 part garden soil, 1 part pearlite (or pumace) and a small amount of sand for the new soil mix. My question is this: I was thinking about burying them about 10cm deeper than they are now, which would put the thin 1st year of growth under the soil and hopefully make them more stable (see picture with drawn lines and text). Not only is the bottom of the cactus thinner than the top but a few of them are also leaning at the bottom then they curve up to vertical at the top. Is this a bad idea? Will I rot out the bottom? I live in the cold north of the US so they've been grown indoors and have a pretty controlled environment. I'm also hoping by mixing my own soil this time it will be better draining and not rot out the newly buried portion.
It´s been a great year....

Cacti Newbie: What are the classic/essentials to sow?
Entheogenic garden posted a topic in Cacti & SucculentsHey guys, So I want to get into growing cacti but I'm overwhelmed by all the trichocereus strains and what not. Could someone make my life easy and recommend what they consider to be the 'classic' or 'essential' varieties/strains to begin with? Cheers! EG
FT: SS Echinopsis hybrid X Trichocereus arboricola seed
mira posted a topic in Seed & Plant SwapsI just harvested seed from a cross I made of a red-flowered clumping SS Echinopsis hybrid (forget which one exactly, but one of the parents was T. andagalensis) with Trichocereus arboricola. I have some seed available for trade and for people who will definitely grow them out.

Trichocereus Bridgesii Monstrose Clone Types
djmattz0r posted a topic in Cacti & SucculentsI went to another local nursery today and was surprised by the amount freaks they sold, had a bunch of grafted crests and variegated columnars as well as some massive TBMs... I searched around online to try and find some answers but everything seems pretty confusing and people seem to mix A and B up. I was told A is the long type and B is the short multiple branching TBM, correct me if I'm wrong. My question is this, does a TBM 'obese' version exist or are they just selling very fat clone B pups as this? They were larger than any I have ever seen personally, small football sized almost.... I held off on picking one up since I was a bit suspicious and they were a bit pricey, I wish I had snagged a picture. Going back next week to see some larger cacti they get in Monday so I'll take some pictures then. I did happen to snag a nice sized TBM clone B for $5 that had 5 segments just because a couple of blemishes There were also 2 massive TBMs (clone A I think?) for $100 each that had between 3-5 large segments, I thought they were well worth it for the size but didn't have $ so I'll get a picture of those too and see what type everyone thinks they are.
WA Cactus Clear-out
Ambient posted a topic in Seed & Plant SwapsOne of my mates is getting rid of a large portion of their ornamental cacti collection, many trichocereus sp. and a few others. For local pickup, cacti come with their pots and soil. For interstate, cacti will be sent bare rooted without pots or soil and postage is unfortunately not available to Tasmania due to quarantine. [Edit: all sold]
