World Seed Supply is excited to offer another amazing variety of hybrid monstrose seed. Trichocereus Peruvianus “Serra Blue” x pachanoi monstrose is one of several trichocereus monstrose hybrid seeds we offer. Serra blu eis a lovely blu form of Peruvian Torch. The crosses containing Serra Blue seem to be quite popular. But this Serra Blue cross is especially amazing because it is the first one we have ever had with monstorse genmetics. 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. Although not every specimen will display characteristics of monstrose growth, the advantage of growing from seed is that you can end up with a whole collection of absolutely distinct specimens that would otherwise take a significant amount of time, effort and money to collect. One tray of seedlings can essentially be a whole collection. This is really the pinnacle of hybridization. In this case, a trichocereus Peruvianus “Serra Blue” mother plant was pollinated with trichocereus pachanoi monstrose pollen. Although one would think of the mother plant having dominant traits, we have not noticed any inferiority when the monstrose genetics in these crosses come from the pollinating plant. 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.
