In this video I pollinate a cactus flower, in particular the flower of a Trichocereus and collect pollen in the process. By pollinating your plants, you make sure that you get lots of seeds from your plants. Most Trichocereus species are self-sterile, which means that you need pollen from another plant to produce seeds.
I am a longtime breeder of Trichocereus, Echinopsis and Lobivia hybrids and the author of various books on the genus Trichocereus. Together with our amazing community we created a wealth of useful databases or information on the genus, articles and photos from all across the habitats. If you enjoy our work and what we do, please support us. Everything we do is made with passion and love for this amazing group of plants and it isn´t always as easy as it looks. We can use all the support we can get. If you want to contact me send me an email to EG@trichocereus.net or join us in our communities.
