Description

A hybrid cross of terscheckii DAWSONS SHORT SPINE and TA03. A seed cross from Australian breeder Rodni Kisar.

This short spined terscheckii originated from Dawson’s Cactus Garden, Bendigo VIC. This is the short spined form of terscheckii.

T. terscheckii initially grows as a single, columnar cactus that are fat for their small size. As the plant matures, it grows numerous arms and takes on a tree-like appearance. T. terscheckii can reach a height of 10-15m and up to 60cm in diameter. Rib count can be 8-15 and spines can be near non-existent to up to 10cm long.

“T. terscheckii is a variable species that is a catch-all name for a variety of different forms, some of which form intermediates with other species like Trichocereus atacamensis, Trichocereus taquimbalensis, Trichocereus validus and others.”

TA 03 is Rodni Kisar’s, an Australian breeder, third named clone. The name is the initials of his nursery Trichocereus Australia. TA 03 is a gorgeous clone, worthy of being named. It displays pronounced V-notches above its padded white aeroles and golden-brown spines. Parentage unknown but seems to display cuzcoensis and peruvianus traits to me. Hopefully Rodni can clarify this for us.

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.
