Trichocereus bridgesii (syn. Echinopsis lagenformis) or commonly known as “Bolivian Torch” is the fast growing species of columnar cacti that originates in Bolivia. Their natural habitat is drier and more desert like compared to San Pedro, meaning the Bolivian Torch does not need as much water as the San Pedro but can still grow almost as quickly. Bolivian torches are highly sought after by ornamental cactus collectors around the world. They are coveted for their beautiful green/blue skin and bright yellow/golden spines, as well as their huge, white flowers.
This was originally a No ID Bridgesii that we picked up from a local nursery, Phoenix Desert Nursery, which is why we decided to name it the “Phoenix Torch”. A few other Arizona cactus gardeners also have this gorgeous cultivar in their garden, all originating from the same nursery. What makes the Phoenix Torch stand out is its beautiful blue color, it almost looks blue-gray. It also have very colorful thorns with the base being bright yellow, fading to red, and finally becoming black at the tips. Overall, it is definitely beautiful addition to anyone’s garden!
