Trichocereus bridgesii


Trichocereus bridgesii

Description: It is a fast-growing columnar cactus , branching at the base that can grow 2–5 (-6) m tall with stems of up to 15–20 cm in diameter.
Stem: Upright light glaucous green coloured, , dark green in age.
Ribs: 4 to 8 ribs (usually 5-7), broad at base, obtuse, with a more or less deep horizontal depression above the areole
Spines: Honey-coloured to brown, located on the nodes in groups of up to 4. They can grow up to 6–7 8-(-10) cm in length and in fully grown plants are spaced evenly on the ribs, 2.5 to 3 cm apart.
Flowers: Very large, night blooming, fragrant, white up to 20 cm in diameter. Flowers tube and fruit covered with scales and black curled hairs.
Blooming time: Summer.

Grafting stock: Along with T. pachanoi (that is commonly suggested as a universal grafting stock) T. bridgesii work well and have a good success rate for lasting a long time. Scions grafted on Trichocereus might initially take slightly longer to begin their growth burst (when compared to other grafting stocks), but usually have a very good life span of steady fast growth.

Defense: Trichocereus bridgesii in Bolivia is grown both as a hedge plant and placed on top of walls as protection for gardens. In fact the spines are very efficient at deterring theft or animals.

Psychoactive effect: The Trichocereus bridgesii has a long  shamanic tradition of use throughout its homeland in the high Bolivian deserts where it is sometimes called achuma or wachuma. The mescaline content is very close to san pedro (about 2% in dry samples), but some individual Trichocereus bridgesii plants have a mescaline content that exceeds that of san pedro (Trichocereus pachanoi). Trichocereus bridgesii  is often cultivated indoors for it's powerful and protective spirit.
