Bridgesii Information

Trichocereus bridgesii (syn. Echinopsis lagenformis) or commonly known as “Bolivian Torch” is a 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 their San Pedro cousins but will still grow almost as quickly.  Bridgesii 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.

NoID stands for No ID which means the exact cultivar/genetics are unknown. However, this cactus was sourced as a seedling from Phoenix Desert Nursery which is a local nursery in Phoenix that sells desert landscaping plants including Trichocereus. The owner breeds his own Pachanoi, Bridgesii, and Peruvianus from his own stock as well as other cultivators in the area and sells both the seedlings and more mature cacti. Most Trichocereus gardeners in AZ have some cacti from PDN in their collection. What makes cacti sourced from PDN so unique is that many of them are unnamed cultivars so there’s a lot of variety in genetics which leads to distinct cacti that are special in their own individual way. If you’re looking to add a piece of Arizona to your garden, then this is the cactus for you!
