indoor trichocereus?

Recommended Posts

hello,

i'd like to grow a little tricocereus of some sort and was wondering if they're fine for indoors?

i live in a studio apartment and personal belongings in common areas are banned, plus i've had cacti in pots stolen from previous apartments. the window i have gets sun in the morning and obviously indirect light in the afternoon, when its open it's quite well lit. will trichocereus do ok indoors?

thanks for help,

qualia,

p.s. how do you pronounce bridgesii?

They'll do fine, but will probably grow fairly slow. i have a couple of brigesii indoors at the moment while i sort out a new home for them, and they are still growing fairly fast, but a bit deformed (losing ribs)

keep them at your parents house if they will let you, we got too excited with cacti collecting while living in a flat.. moving house was a BITCH

haha oh dear that would have been fun ;)

the problem is you never quite notice how bad its getting till the time comes. cacti collecting has made me want to put some roots down somewhere and never flat again (aged 19 lol)

thanks,

i don't mind them growing slow, they're simply ornamental at this stage.

also i don't envisage i'll get more than one or two so transport won't be a problem,

thanks again for responses!

You bad bad man lol. I say it brid-jess-ee-eye, potato, potata, tomato, tomata. Be careful blowng, the pronunciation police are watchin and listening and they will get you, oh yes, they WILL get you!!! They cruise around with the grammar detectives ready to fuck everyones day.

Im scared to utter any cacti names now, i don't have any real life conversations about cacti really ,so no one to teach me correct pronunciation, brid-jess-ee-eye is how i had thought it to be... how about Trichocereus? I heard a some say it like ''trick -o - seious'', i always thought it to be, trike - o - serious... yeah ya, potato , patota!

Haha, i say it the way i first heard it and its prolly wrong but once ya start usin it a certain way its hard to change. The only one i have been able to change my pronunciation with is spachianus, i used to call it spash-ee-anus now i call it spack-ee-arnus.

Lol, who cares
