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 turnibg 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 12-15". If you prefer to see the exact specimen you're buying, check out our other Exact specimens listed for sale. Same goes with cuttings, approx. 12" in length. Never hesitate to ask questions!!!

**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!

The cactus is beautiful and expertly packed and shipped!
Very happy with my purchase from Succulent Source, definitely the exact plant in the pic and even better in person. I received this guy with the other cacti I ordered, shipped quickly and very well packed. All the plants were super healthy and happy upon arrival and have already shown growth, highly recommend Succulent Source!
Wonderful healthy cactus exactly as pictured and has already shown some growth in the last few weeks. Arrived quickly and very safely packaged with the other cacti I ordered. I would definitely buy from Succulent Source again and would recommend them to anyone else looking for larger rooted plants online!
I am very satisfied with my order. It arrived quickly (to the Chicago area) after ordering and carefully packed and in good condition. The cactus was also slightly larger than advertised, coming in at about 10". It also came with a bonus much smaller cactus, which was a nice surprise. Both are doing well in a sunny spot on my back porch.
