    tiny tric collection



    front to rear

    Trichocereus pachanoi (possibly a pseudo-Backeberg clone?)

    Trichocereus peruvianus

    Trichocereus bridgesii f. monstrosus clone "B"

    Trichocereus "peruvianus", this is one of the pseudo peruvians that have flooded the market, more likely a T. cuzoensis variant... caveat emptor,
    peruvianus do not have swelling at the base of the spines and spine color is also incorrect.
    my first tric purchase... fool me once ey

    not pictured
    Trichocereus sp. SS02 (probably a distinct T. bridgesii variant)
    Trichocereus bridgesii f. monstrosus clone "A"
    Trichocereus bridgesii (standard form)

    eye candy of Michael Smith's collection

    See, I guess this is what my mom says "it's boring to collect plants that all look the same"... they look the same except for a little height and no needles/needles! Ahh!

    Well, good luck anyways... I'll just try to picture those as Sundews lol. How old are they?

    I always liked collecting the odd ball stuff LOL

    after they get a little age behind them, some can grow more then a foot a year (peruvianus)

    Nice specimens! I like San Pedro the best, since it isn't covered with big needles

    Well the bridgessi f. monstrosus probably has even less spines... and due to its appearance is commonly known as the "penis cactus"

    (let the jokes begin LOL)
