World Seed Supply is excited to offer these amazing hybrid seedlings grown from our own seed stock under Electric Sky LED Grow Lights. We are offering several different selections of hybrid trichocereus seedlings. These are some of the coolest we have had the pleasure of growing. These specimens have retained the monstrose genetics of the parent plant in this hybrid cross to form these crested and monstrose trichocereus hybrid seedlings. These are at least a year old from seed, and there is quite a bit of variation. Every specimen is completely unique. We also offer non-displaying seedlings from this batch for a lower cost.
Trichocereus pachanoi monstrose x pachanoi is one of several trichocereus monstrose hybrid seedlings we offer. Monstrose is a term that refers to mutated growth patterns on cacti. These patterns form unique specimens with extreme aesthetic value. Usually this type of growth is reproduced by cloning, but this mutation can be passed down by seed. For this particular cross, a trichocereus pachanoi monstrose was used as the mother plant, and it was pollinated with standard trichocereus pachanoi pollen. Trichocereus pachanoi, also known as San Pedro Cactus, is one of the most common landscaping cacti in the U.S., since it is a fast grower and can tolerate moisture better than many other cacti. San Pedro Cactus is also a sacred cactus in South America.
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 instance, you may get the increased growth speed of one species combined with the spine length or coloration that is characteristic of the other species. 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. . Although people don’t usually think of cacti for their flowers, trichocereus flowers undoubtedly rival the most impressive flowers of any other type of plant out there. We also offer other crosses with both of these parent plants. ACTUAL SPECIMENS MAY VARY FROM PICTURE.
