JB is one of four hybrids obtained from Cactus Country VIC by SAB forum member PD. He named them J1, J2, J3 and JB to keep track of them in his collection, since he was using them for hybridisation. The J hybrids were named after the owner of CC, Jim, who built an amazing collection filled with beautiful Trich's.

PD has noted the JB clone as the only J named clone as a known species, hence the B for bridgesii. It has been said to closely resembling Eileen with its beautiful glaucous colour, short spines, powerful growth, and good disease resistance.

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.

We strongly recommended to select Express Post shipping for all plant orders to minimise the transit time.
