Trichocereus Scopulicola is a Bolivian trichocereus species that most closely resembles trichocereus pachanoi. Scopulicola is known for having even smaller spines than the standard pc pachanoi. They are almost non-existent. Scopulicola could actually be compared to a skinny trichocereus Juul’s Giant, although a scopulicola’s ribs seem to be a bit flatter and spaced wider apart. A cross section of scopulicola would tend to be more obviously star-shaped and less round than that of a Juul’s Giant due to this feature. Aside from the established sacred significance, it is surprising that scopulicola has not become more popular like its popular cousin, pachanoi. Scopulicola’s small spines would make it very easy to handle. Trichocereus scopulicola has always been sought-after among serious cactus collectors. Trichocereus scopulicola is a common species used for genetic crossing. But pure scopulicola seeds and specimens are generally quite rare. We have a limited quantity of these seeds, originally labelled as “trichocereus scopulina”. Since no record of trichocereus scopulina exists anywhere, we suspected these were meant to be scopulicola. Upon double checking with Knize several times, we have been told that, in fact, these are scopulicola. He admits there is no such species as trichocereus scopulina.
