Description

A hybrid cross of OLD MAN SAM and peruvianus TA 01. A seed cross from Australian breeder Rodni Kisar.

Currently researching origins of OLD MAN SAM.

TA 01 is Rodni Kisar’s first named clone. The name is the initials of his nursery Trichocereus Australia. TA 01 is the first of many new clones Rodni has bred and named after Trichocereus Australia.

Rodni has explained the background of TA 01 as “While going through an old message I realized that I messed up the initial name for this clone. The name that I had on this plant originally was T. peruvianus ‘Shamans Garden’ which I thought was right till I received a ‘Shamans Garden’ clone from a forum member that was quite different. Upon further investigation I realized that this clone was grown from seed collected from a shaman’s garden in Peru, hence why I had that name on it. I’ve decided to name it T. peruvianus ‘TA 01’.”

A hybrid is formed when crossing two genetically different species with each other. Most hybrids are manmade however some are natural.

With cross pollination the mother plant is the first name, and the father plant is the second. The mother is the plant whose flower was pollenated, and the fruit ripens on, and the father is the pollen donor. When the crossing plants, in most cases, the resulting offspring comes closer to the mother than to the father. However, there are a lot of exceptions to this and sometimes, the genes of the father are simply more dominant.

Germination.
Best to use a container with drainage holes, takeaway containers work well with holes punctured in them. Layer with high quality potting mix and top layer with zeolite – layers of 2 cm each is fine. Sow seeds on top of the moist zeolite, do not cover seeds. Place this container into a sealed, larger clear container with water in its base. Prop up the seed container, so it isn’t sitting in the water. The humid environment you create with containers will keep the seeds moist from then on. Place lid on and do not remove. Do not water again until re-potting is needed. Removing the lid will destroy the humid environment you are trying to create.

Every seed packet is hand counted and is guaranteed to contain at least the number of seeds specified, however human error can occur and please don’t hesitate to contact us if there are any discrepancies.
To the best of our knowledge these seeds are viable to the standard percentage for its species, either SAB nursery grown or purchased from a reputable trusted breeder. However, if you disagree, please do not hesitate to contact us for up-to-date germination rates or for a germination test to be conducted.
