Details

The Bolivian torch cactus (trichocereus bridgesii), is a fast-growing columnar cactus from Bolivia. Among the indigenous populations of Bolivia, it is sometimes called achuma, although these names are also applied to related species such as Trichocereus pachanoi which are also used for their psychedelic effects. Instructions for growing cactus from seed. ●mix 3 parts of commercial potting compost with 1 part of grit (not sand) and 1 part of perlite. ●level down into pots or a seed tray. ●soak the compost with water. ●sprinkle the seeds evenly over the compost. Do not cover them with soil, they need light to germinate. ●cover with a propagator lid or sheet of glass or cling-film. ●place in non-direct sunlight at 70˚-80˚. ●keep the compost moist, but not wet, by gently spraying with water when needed. ●seeds should germinate within 2 weeks. ●watch out for damping off fungus and spray with fungicide immediately. ●keep the seedlings in indirect sunlight for about 6 months, then slowly let them have more light. They will have a lush green colour if the light levels are right. If the epidermis turns red it means they are getting too much light, so shade with an appropriate material. Muslin and thin white sheeting works well. ●be in no hurry to re-pot them. Wait until they are fighting for room.
