Description

A hybrid cross of a scopulicola crossed with peru OLD TEDS. A seed cross from Australian breeder Rodni Kisar.

Scopulicola is a columnar cactus from Bolivia. They typically grow columnar, pupping from the base and rarely side shooting. This fat species can grow up to 4m in height and over 10cm in diameter with a dark green epidermis and very small spines if any at all. Scop’s easily forms hybrids with another Bolivian species, such as T. bridgesii but crosses can be made across the Trichocereus genera. Scopulicola’s makes ideal grafting stock as they accept grafts very easily. The species was discovered and described by Friedrich Ritter. Its status is currently unknown, but it may be extinct in nature.

Currently researching origins of peru OLD TEDS

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.
