Nitrogen: TPM (Trichocereus peruvianus Monstrose)
This plant comes from a SAB member called Nitrogen. He earned himself a great reputation by producing some of the most kickass San Pedro hybrids in the past 10 years. Some of his mother plants are the TPM, the TPC or the TPQC.
The TPM constantly switches between monstrose and non-monstrose growth, what gives it a truly unique look. This type of TPM is one of a kind, as it is known to pass down the monstrose gene to its F1 offspring. From all the seeds I´ve grown, I had a 50% mutation rate. And since it is rare that mutants produce mutant offspring, it´s definitely an amazing plant.
Nitrogen produced numerous hybrids with this plant, of which I´ll show some of them here.
In 2012, Nitrogen used this plant for the following crosses:
TPM x N1
TPM x (SS02 x pachanoi v. “Mel/vin”)
Mel/vin x TPM
Psycho0 x TPM
TPQC x TPM
