Trichocereus Bridgesii "Jiimz Strong Spine" cactus specimen. Two options, either a cutting or potted available. These Bridgesiis are named "Strong Spines" per their distictive and consistently thick grouping of spines. Spine counts tend to range from 3-5. Great strain of Bridgesii, they grow thick and tend to have a rounder/fuller head. Even here in southern California though, these guys can still develop various viral and fungal issues that tend to be common amongst Bridgesii. Humidity, excessive moisture, damage, and stress can all trigger symptoms. At our nursery, 99% of the time they will naturally heal, with the black area turning to a regular cactus scar color over a few months. Many collectors across the country where they have to control their growing environment and season may use various anyi fungal/viral treatments. On very rare occasions we will take a knife to an area that is spreading/not healing and cut damaged tissue away and allow air movement and sun to help with healing. Spots can also occur via shipping, we recommend being patient and allowing time to naturally heal vs panicking! Potted specimens will ship in their 1 gallon containers and will average between 10-12", sometimes taller per season. These are pretty specimens, but not show winners, they will likely have some scars and marks etc as just shared.

Handle with CARE and please see our FAQ for basic care info.
**Cactus are not perfect, they may have small flaws, we try and photograph all sides of a cactus including any flaws that catch our attention, but please do not expect every spine to be perfect, these are growing cactus and like people, they have character!
People Love Our #EC44 EXACT Trichocereus Bridgesii "Jiimz Strong Spine" Cactus! Have a Read:
As a repeat customer, I continue to be extremely impressed with the service, careful packaging, and especially, quality of the plants that arrive each time. The bonus succulents that have been included with each package always brighten our day! I will 100% be using The Succulent Source again in the future!
The cacti came quickly, carefully packed and very healthy with sturdy metal tags for each - amazing for the price. There was even a beautiful bonus cactus (though it wasn't identified so I'll need to look it up:))
Bought multiple times from them and they have been great!
Great service! Would highly recommend(:
