Trichocereus ‘Yowie’ (Echinopsis)

Trichocereus ‘Yowie’ (Echinopsis)

Yowie is an Australian Trichocereus clone that came from the Fields collected. It probably came to Australia during one of the first expeditions by Harry Blossfeld, who funded his trips by selling plants to cactus collectors.

Yowie is a very cool and popular Trichocereus with a unique spination that consists of two parallel Spines per Areole. It also has very pronounced ribs and looks very much like an Ecuadorian Trichocereus pachanoi. Now let me add some information about where this clone came from.

This clone originated in Yarrawonga Victoria. The SAB member Marsha (who was previously known by the username “Yowie” led PD to the Fields collection, where the mother plant of this clone grew.  The clone is easily recognized by the pair of spines, that makes it very different from other clones that belong to this species. However, similar plants can be found all across Australia (and the world), so it´s not really sure if it is actually a clone or just represents a local type.  I know similar (and almost identical) Pachanois, especially from Ecuador and it may be very well possible that they are not genetically identical to the Yowie clone. If you encounter similar plants, you can just test it by trying to breed it with a verified Yowie. If you are not sure about the ID of your plant, feel free to post in on SAB or our Trichocereus Facebook Group!
