This special listing is for rare hybrid cactus seeds. These seeds are the product a trichocereus BBG mother plant crossed with the pollen of a trichocereus huancoensis. Trichocereus BBG is an unknown trichocereus clone that was originally acquired at the Berkeley Botanical Gardens. It is a pachanoid specimen with round ribs and medium spines. Trichocereus BBG also is known for exceptionally large flowers. Trichocereus huancoensis is a lesser-known cactus that is pretty sought-after by serious collectors. Huancoensis is a pachanoid type of plant, meaning it has characteristics of pachanoi. This particular species is native to Huanuno, Peru. It has white nocturnal flowers and can have new growth that is completely spineless. The blue-green branching columns of Huancoensis can form can be incredibly thick. Stems as thick as 8 inched have been reported, with columns that tower 20 feet high. Certainly, this brings the size gene into the mix for these hybrid seeds. You might expect a thick cactus with big flowers from this mix. Intentionally hybridized cacti are highly sought-after by cactus collectors because of their rarity. Many hybrids also combine genetics of different species to form superior specimens that contain the more desirable qualities of both parents.

For collector’s, their fascination with hybrid cacti can be the pursuit of superior specimens, to the aesthetic mixing to simple rarity. with hybrids, you go from a set number of existing species to a seemingly endless list of possible combinations. For anyone beginning to collect hybrid cacti, this is an essential choice because it combines the two most iconic members of this wonderful genus.
