Fields Validus (Trichocereus validus)
This plant is one of the most popular and famed plants in the Australian Fields collection. This plant is a beautiful textbook specimen of the often-misunderstood species Trichocereus validus (Monviella).
It is still unknown from where Robert Fields sourced his plants, but I am positive we can add some more information soon. There were two different Validus plants growing at the (now defunct) Fields collection and I was lucky enough to get some photos of both plants by SAB member Terrapin! (Thanks again, mate! :-D)

Here is another plant that was growing at the Fields collection. Those photos came from Terrapin as well and I am happy to have them around:
Here are some photos showing the Fields Validus clones being grown by other Australian members;
