T peru "Grandfather" (10-11" MID Cutting)
***THIS IS A MID CUTTING*** (Last pics are examples of some of the mids, they are all about the same size as they all came from the same gigantic column)
Trichocereus peruvianus "GRANDFATHER" - My all time favorite cactus (probably even favorite overall plant) in the Mallacht's Plants Garden.
Great story to this glorious cactus; one I never tire of telling. A friend of mine that I got the cutting from has a good friend that is Peruvian. The Peruvian guy’s Grandfather brought this cutting over in a backpack over 50 years ago when he came to the US. He is now in his 80’s.
Must have been a pretty special cactus to have been brought over in a backpack, eh?
