Sausage Plant (Trichocereus peruvianus)
The Sausage Plant is a very blue type of short spined Trichocereus peruvianus or some kind of Pachanoi / Peruvianus intermediate. The name comes from the “sausage-like” growth. It has the tendence to terminate its growth and pup again on top of the old shoot. That look can sometimes make them impression of a sausage.
SAUSAGE PLANT originally comes from South Australia, but there also are other sites where it can be found. That also includes the Fields collection.
Unfortunately, I do not have a good pic of this pupping behaviour, but it´s been reported from various growers that own it. It definitely is one of the most interesting Tricho clones out there and exceedingly rare in cultivation.
This is a Sausage Plant x Trichocereus Scopulicola
