Trichocereus Clone Two (Aplantis)

CLONE TWO  was brought back from Peru by Manuel Terra who collected in in 2013 in Huaraz. The plant originally stood beside a Ceviche Restaurant. The owner of this restaurant gifted a cutting to Mr. Terra, who then brought it back to Europe and propagated numerous cuttings.

This clone is available from Aplantis.net every now and then. It is a very fine and curvy clone that produces a beautiful growth. The plants are usually bright green, but with the tendency to become very glaucous and the spines are relatively small, sometimes completely absent. The areoles are larger and more hairy than the ones of Clone One and the skin also produces a much more glaucous growth at times.

Trichocereus Lupita Aplantis MT06

The Trichocereus clone Lupita was collected in Huaraz, Peru! The collection took place in 2013 and was assigned with the collection code MT06. The plant grew in front of a store whose owner´s name was Lupita. She gifted this beautiful Trichocereus clone to the person who imported it into the EU, from where it made the rounds to other growers all around the world. It is a really nice and interesting  strain from Peru.

Various populations of Trichocereus santaensis

Various populations of Trichocereus santaensis 

There are various populations of Trichocereus santaensis. The species originally occurs in the Santa Valley. It is HUGE and it covers and borders other historic cities like Huaraz, Olleros, Ancash and many more. In those regions, you can sometimes find this rare gem labeled as Trichocereus pachanoi or simply SAN PEDRO.

During the Sacred Succulents Field Trips, they visited various populations of Trichocereus santaensis and I want to combine them here on this page.

BK09511.7 Trichocerus santaensis, Rio Santa, Ancash, Peru

This one was visited during the 2009 Field Trip. Near Rio Santa, Ancash, Peru. Pic: Ben Kamm, Sacredsucculents.com! Support them to ensure their survival so they can go on more Field Trips in the future!
It is a super interesting plant that has the typical discoloration of the skin that this species is known for. Werner Rauh particularly mentioned it in his original description. This is probably the archetype of this species. But there are more and the variation among the other related types is HUGE.-Some have longer spines, while some others look more like typical Pachanois. When dealing with Pachanois from Huaraz, it´s sometimes not easy to keep them apart from this species and some people do not differentiate between the two.

BK09509.10 Trichocereus santaensis, Rio Santa near Olleros, Ancash

Another Pic from the same Location as BK09509.9 but different Plant near Olleros. Which is a hotspot for this rare Trichocereus. If you come across plants from this area, it´s probably Trichocereus santaensis. Note the weird spination which is really typical for this species. And once again, the discoloration of the skin.
