Trichocereus grandigonus x T.vatteri Orange CHR.1

Trichocereus hybrid comes from the German breeder Rainer Heise. Trichocereus grandigonus is a hybrid between Trichocereus grandiflora eyriesii and Trichocereus thelegonus. The father is a Trichocereus vatteri with a beautiful orange flower. It has a slender body very similar to other Thelegonus hybrids like Trichocereus imperialis. The spines are very short, more like the spines on Echinopsis eyriesii v.grandiflora. Please note that this is NOT the same plant as Trichocereus grandiflorus.

Hildewintera ‘Humkes Röschen’ Cleistocactus

Hildewintera Hybrid HUMKES RÖSCHEN (translates to Humke´s Rosie) is one of the hybrids that flowers all season long. I´ve had at least 50 flowers on a very little plant during this season, and quite a lot of them took and produced viable seeds. It´s a great and very useful hybrid. In this video I pollinated it with Lobivia/Trichocereus hybrid ALTENA.

My Grandpa in Law passed Away!

Here´s a video that I filmed a couple years ago when my wife’s grandfather passed away. He was very old, but he was a really special guy and as someone who lost both of his grandfathers very early on, I liked having someone from this older generation around to tell me barely funny jokes. I try to be very open about the things going on in my life, and this was one of the sadder moments.

While doing this, I pollinate a Wörlitz follow-up hybrid by Uwe Kahle. His breeder´s code for this cross is KA.2013.205.06 and the parents are Wörlitz x (Gröner Orange x Legon). The flower has a very strong contrast, which doesn’t even show accordingly in the video because it’s just too powerful.

Takoradi x Flying Saucer Trichocereus Cactus Jerk S1E421

This hybrid comes from an Uwe Kahle cross from 2012. The breeder´s code is KA.2012.61.09 and the parents are Takoradi x Flying Saucer. Both are excellent parents and most seedlings from this cross that I have seen looked great. Definitely a gorgeous hybrid and I´ve been making lots of crosses with this particular plant.

Trichocereus Flying Saucer x (Cantora Gelb x Cantora Orange) RL.2005.29

This Reinhard Liske hybrid from 2005 has a huge orange flower and really blew me away a bit. I already knew that the flower would be pretty awesome, but when you see a 20 cm+ flower opening in front of you it´s always a spectacle. The parents are Flying Saucer x (Cantora Gelb x Cantora Orange). It´s very close to Cantora Orange and as far as I am concerned this is an improved version of it. The breeder´s code is RL.2005.29

Trichocereus grandigonus x Trichocereus vatteri Orange.CHR1

Trichocereus Hybrid GRANDIGONUS (Trichocereus thelegonus x Echinopsis eyriesii v.grandiflora) x Trichocereus vatteri Orange. There are numerous clones from this Heise cross, and the flower color varies substantially. This one is clone CHR.1 and it was the one that I personally liked the most.

Trichocereus Hybrid x Hildewintera EOS / AURORA Cactus Jerk S1E414

Trichocereus Hybrid x Hildewintera EOS / AURORA Cactus Jerk S1E414

In this video I am crossing a great Uwe Kahle hybrid with the classic Hildewintera hybrid EOS, also known as AURORA. It´s a real gem and I personally enjoy breeding with it. The flowers have a very unique color and it´s just one of those classics that have character. Intergeneric crosses like this one have potential because you could get a Trichocereus body with a Hildewintera flower. It is rare, but it can certainly happen and that´s the goal here. I would´ve loved to bring both these hybrids into the sun and take the video there, but the flowers of EOS are just so fragile that I didn´t want to risk breaking them off.

Akersia / Hildewintera Hybrid Otto Schultz

Hildewintera / Akersia Hybrid OTTO SCHULTZ is a popular intergeneric hybrid that produces beautiful little flowers that look a bit similar to Cleistocactus flowers. They are roughly 9 cm in diameter and have a nice purple color. I personally love this hybrid and made various crosses with it. In regards to the potential I am not sure how it´ll do when paired with other parents, but I see a lot of potential for crosses with Trichocereus. The parents of Otto Schultz are (Hildewintera aureispina x Akersia roseiflora) x Echinopsis eyriesii v. grandiflora.

Lobivia zecheri x Trichocereus candicans VR.2008.25.2

This is a remarkable hybrid grown from a cross by Kakteen Vers. The breeder´s code for this cross is VR.2008.25.2 and the parents are Lobivia zecheri x Trichocereus candicans (natural hybrid, probably collected by Andreas Wessner). The natural Candicans hybrid that was used as father has a colored flower is a natural hybrid. These hybrids are really rare and particularly beautiful. To sum it up, it´s a really fantastic intergeneric hybrid between Lobivia and Trichocereus.

Trichocereus ‘Flying Saucer’

The Trichocereus hybrid FLYING SAUCER is one of the best hybrids ever made. Personally, I consider it the best one and I totally love it. And never really got what the hype was all about until I saw that flower opening in front of me. The flowers are up to 23 cm in diameter and just look phenomenal. After all these years, Flying Saucer is still known to push out some amazing offspring on a regular basis.
