Lobivia Hybrid BLAZE aka BLAZA

Lobivia hybrid BLAZE is probably one of the most popular and best Lobivia hybrids out there. The parents of BLAZE are unknown, but I personally think that it is involving a Lobivia winteriana. The flowers are relatively small but absolutely beautiful. BLAZE is also called BLAZA, but I think that´s probably due to a typo.

Lobivia zecheri x Trichocereus candicans VR.2008.25.2

This is a remarkable hybrid grown from a cross by Kakteen Vers. The breeder´s code for this cross is VR.2008.25.2 and the parents are Lobivia zecheri x Trichocereus candicans (natural hybrid, probably collected by Andreas Wessner). The natural Candicans hybrid that was used as father has a colored flower is a natural hybrid. These hybrids are really rare and particularly beautiful. To sum it up, it´s a really fantastic intergeneric hybrid between Lobivia and Trichocereus.

Lobivia Hybrid ANEMONE by Wessner – Flower Video

My large Lobivia Anemone mother plant pushed out lots of flowers in the 2019 season and this gorgeous flush came out early in the season. Lots of gorgeous cactus flowers with a black throat. Was able to pollinate various of them with stuff like Lobivia winteriana and cannot wait to see what comes from the seeds.

Other Cacti from the Sacred Succulents Field Trips

Other Cacti from the Sacred Succulents Field Trips

Hi Guys, in this post I will show you some of the other cacti from the Sacred Succulents Field trips. The copyright of all those pics is: Ben Kamm, Sacredsucculents.com

BK08530.1 Mahueniopsis boliviana, Tambillo, Bolivia

This majestic Mahueniopsis is from Bolivia. Sacred Succulents gave away seeds of that plant, which was visited during the 2008 Sacred Succulent Field Trip

Haageocereus sp, Matucana, Peru

This very nice Haageocereus grows in Matucana, which is the home of many amazing Trichocereus species as well. There were no seed collected from that species.

 BK09508.4 Borzicactus fieldianus, Chavin, Ancash, Peru

This interesting Borzicactus is definitely a Trichocereus Lookalike that you should have seen. At first, it looked a little big like a Rauhocereus but the strong segmented areoles are a lot more dominant than on other Rauhocereus species. This plant was visited during the 2009 Field Trips!

 Rebutia sp, Rio Lope Mendoza, Cochabamba, Bolivia 2010

Have a look at this barely visible cactus in between rocks and dead plants. That´s a pretty typical Rebutia population and it gives you a better understanding why cacti are sometimes so hard to find. I am pretty sure that there still are a lot of new species out there to be discovered, that are just not visible enough to be found. There were no seeds collection from those plants.

Trichocereus Lookalikes

Trichocereus Lookalikes

There are various columnar cacti that you can encounter. And though many look very much like Trichocereus on the first look, many of them actually aren´t. This page is about the many lookalikes that are available on the open market. Some of them are labeled “Trichocereus” and some of them aren´t. It includes many plants that were originally collected by seed collectors and field botanists who made a description without having seen the flowers. Because despite the fact that many columnar cacti can be very similar to Trichocereus in their looks, the flowers are what´s usually the biggest help to find out more about the origin of a plant.

Soehrensia

Soehrensias are very similar to Trichocereus. However, most of them stay small, have way too many ribs or a different flower. In addition to that, some of them (like Soehrensia formosa) are very broad and thick. Soehrensias were integrated into the genus Echinopsis, until DNA testing revealed that they are very different in regards to their genetic profile. Because of that, they are regarded a real genus again.

I have no idea which soehrensia this is but it´s definitely not a Trichocereus and Soehrensia comes closest.

GYMNANTHOCEREUS CHLOROCARUS

This genus is not really a genus anymore and those plants were moved into the genus Browningia. The current name of the species shown is Browningia chlorocarpa. Other former Gymnanthocerei are now called Browningia altissima (Gymnanthocereus altissimus), Browningia Pilleifera (Gymnanthocereus pilleifer). There always was taxonomic chaos surrounding those plants and very few pictures exist. The flowers are usually a lot smaller than the ones on Trichocereus and vary in many more aspects.

Origin: Huancabamba and Abra Porculla. Ritters collection Number was FR 290. This species was also called Seticereus Chlorocarpus. If you have pics of any former Gymnanthocereus species, please let me know because I´d love to have more of them on the site.

Rauhocereus

This genus is extremely interesting and I am constantly looking for new pics or seeds of Rauhocereus species. The most popular one is Rauhocereus Riosanijiensis. There are´t many sources where you can buy seeds or plants. The breeder misplant sold a couple seedgrown Rauhocereus last year but I am not sure if he will get some more.

I will also add pics and descriptions of Azureocereus. Erdisia, Weberbauerocereus, Coryocactus, Lobivias Echinopsis and many more. If you have pics of a plant that would fit on this page, please write me on the Trichocereus Facebook group. I will constantly update this page.
