This is a very hard-to-find and very uniquely shaped cactus plant.
These are rooted / established cactus currently growing in a 2” container. This cactus ships in the pot.
Cactus should be repotted on a warm day, let the roots settle for a day or two in the shade before watering and moving to more sun.
Note: Trichocereus bridgesii cacti bruise very easily. Bruises first appear as black bumps and then brown and callous over (end up looking like cork-brown moles). You can see one of these spots on the cactus pictured. We make every effort to not touch and carefully cushion the cactus for shipping, but expect this common occurrence. New, untouched growth will be pristine.
Handling tips: Use kitchen tongs - with rubber covers over the tips - to handle the cactus without scarring them while repotting.
You will receive the plant pictured or one almost identical.
Peak growth season: Summer
Propagation: Take cuttings during growth season, Spring is ideal. Pot on a warm, sunny day.
Water when soil is dry to the touch. Will require more water in the Summer.
Your succulent will be wrapped with care and shipped with extra padding in the box. Plants can take 1-5 days to prep for shipping and weather can impact the prep time. We ship as quickly as is safe for your plant.
If you will be experiencing below freezing temperatures, please add a heat pack to your order.
I’ve been trying to find one of these for an affordable price for a long time. I was so happy to catch this when the shop listed them! I was expecting a very tiny plant for the price, but to my surprise it was bigger than expected (I laugh every time I say that but it’s true)! Love this shop, great plants, shipped well, and they threw in some free cuttings of some other succulents too!
