J2 – Trichocereus sp.
Just like the other J-hybrids, this clone comes from Cactus Country in Strathmerton, Australia. They were named after the owner Jim, who built an amazing collection filled with beautiful Trichos.
Most people call this a Tr. pachanoi, but I do not agree. The distance between the areoles and the flower indicate a Trichocereus bridgesii hybrid. If not as the mother, then as the father.
The clone clone was widely distributed by the SAB member PD, who still uses the J hybrids for hybrid cultivation. All of them, including the J2 are hybrids.
J1 = Trichocereus peruvianus / pachanoi hybrid. Apart from the long spines, it looks like a Tr. pachanoi.
J2 = Trichocereus bridgesii hybrid or hybrid between Tr. pachanoi and Tr. bridgesii.
J3 = Tr. peruvianus
JB = Tr. bridgesii
Where to buy Seeds or Plants of the J2 Trichocereus clone?: Well, though this plant was used for a lot of hybrid breeding, they are still hard to get! PD offers them sometimes, but I have no idea how to get in touch with him.
I also get some J1-J3 seeds every now and then, whenever a friend of mine uses his mother plants to produce hybrids.
