Trichocereus bridgesii "SS02" (12" Tip cutting) *AUCTION*
(1) Trichocereus bridgesii "SS02" (12" Tip cutting) up for auction.
"SS02 stands for a certain clone brought into cultivation by Ben Kamm & his nursery Sacred Succulents. It is a relatively short-spined Trichocereus bridgesii that is known to produce some mind-boggling offspring. Most of the hybrids produced with this plants do not look like a standard Bridgesii and due to the fact that Sacred Succulents has been offering them for years, there is a huge number of different SS02 Hybrids available.
Here is an excerpt of Sacred Succulent´s description of their SS02:
Dense candelabra stands to 16´tall. Blue/green frosted stems up to 5″ in diameter with 5 – 7 ribs. Each areole bears 2 – 4 central spines up to 1.5″ long. White nocturnal flowers. The new growth on old stemps is often spineless. A distinct form of Trichocereus bridgesii. Cold hardy to 25° Fahrenheit."
Trichocereus bridgesii, or Echinopsis lageniformis is a very fast-growing columnar cactus from Bolivia. To the indigenous people of Bolivia it is often known as achuma.
