Trichocereus Terscheckii is the hardiest of the trichocereus species, being able to withstand temperatures as low as 15 degrees Fahrenheit. Trichocereus terscheckii is also one of the largest in the genus with mature specimens reaching between thirty and forty feet in height and ten inches in diameter. Its massive stature and mid-stem branching habit gives it a treelike appearance that much resembles America’s Giant Saguaro (carnegiea gigantea). However, this Argentina native grows much quicker and can tolerate more rainfall and colder temperatures, making it a popular landscaping substitute to the Giant Saguaro. Terscheckii’s spines are thick and golden and its blooms are large, white and nocturnal. Trichocereus terscheckii flowers can easily measure eight inches in length. There is also some suggestion that terscheckii may be part of a similar sacred tradition as certain other trichocereus varieties. All seed counts are approximated.
