KK340 Trichocereus Cuzcoensis
The KK340 is a Trichocereus Cuzcoensis that was collected by Karel Knize, who also sold this type for a few decades. Please note that Knize sold various types labeled as KK340. The first one was on the 1998 seed list and as a collection site he gave “Area Cuzco”. It also turned up on his 1999 seed list as var. cuzcoensis. In the year 2000, Knize sold it through his cuttings list. He also sold it as seed and cuttings through his 2004 Seed list with the remarks “Cuzco, Huachac, 3200 meters”.
I lack more pics of this plant to say anything for certain. The pics of the relatively small cuttings that Knize sent look like a mix between Trichocereus Cuzcoensis and Trichocereus Peruvianus. There is no real source for seeds or plants, apart from maybe Karel Knize. But everytime I tried buying from him, he let me down and either sent me nothing or dead seed. I always wanted to do business with him but ended up being extremely disappointed and frustrated. Well, but enough of that.
This pic shows KK340 and is from the Shaman Australis shop. It shows a rather typical Cuzcoensis with a bright green epidermis. The plant is currently out of stock but if you are interested to buy one, maybe send them a message and ask if they will get them again.
