An open cross pollination of bridgesii PSYCHO0 and unknown pollinator. A seed cross originating and grown here at the SAB Nursery. Our PSYCHO0 x OPEN's are now a selection of cloned plants. They are strong, disease resistant plants which have produced some attractive unique qualities.

Psycho0 is an Australian clone originating from Cactus Country VIC. Named by SAB member Incognito in memory of his friend and SAB member Psycho0.
It is a fast growing clone that often displays a blue glaucous colour with long, strong spines that are yellow in colour. Psycho0 is an unique Trichocereus thought to be a pure, or nearly pure Bridgesii and known to have good disease resistance.

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.

Note: Orders containing cuttings may not be shipped the Tuesday following payment received as per usual procedure. This is due to the cactus being cut to order and dry weather is required to ensure rot does not occur.

IMPORTANT: Your cutting needs to be calloused before it is ready for planting. Keep the cutting dry for a week or two until the cut end has formed a callus, you can use a little sulphur on the end to help with drying and to protect it from rot, but it isn't a necessity. Once calloused you can plant your cutting. The process works any time of year, but cactus cuttings potted in late summer to early autumn root the fastest. Fill an adequately sized pot with specialty cactus soil or mix your own from scratch with extra grit added, coarse sand, perlite, scoria, or pumice gives the soil the appropriate drainage and aeration. Plant the calloused cutting in the prepared potting mix and top dress to prevent soil loss. Once potted, keep dry, do not water! Most cactus cuttings root in four to six weeks.
