Bruce – Trichocereus bridgesii
BRUCE is a beautiful Trichocereus bridgesii with very broad ribs and a funny spination. Just like many other, BRUCE is a hybrid of Australian origin. Because of the broad ribs, this plant tends to have relatively few ribs. Most plants I´ve seen had between 4 and 6 ribs. The mother plant goes back to the SAB member BLACKDRAGON, who had a giant monster of this amazing plant growing in his garden. He also managed to get it to flower and the flower was relatively typical for a Tr. bridgesii.
BRUCE is said to be somewhat related to the Tr. bridgesii clone EILEEN, that was growing in front of reshroomED´s house. Personally, I would not be surprised if both were grown from similar or the same seed lots. But that´s just speculation and I have yet to hear more detailed information on the background of BRUCE. The plant is also known to show a „melting“ look from time to time, which indicates that this is (at least partially) mutated somehow. BRUCE comes from South Australia and is also very similar to the clone MBN95/ SUPER BRIDGE, which more or less lost as I do not know of anyone who has that plant with an intact label.

Where to buy cuttings or seeds of BRUCE (Trichocereus bridgesii)?
BRUCE is one of the rarer hybrids from Australia and I know of no breeder that is currently breeding with it. You might try to make a posting at the SAB forum, cactusforum.org or in our Trichocereus Facebook Group!
