“Trichocereus” Genus

Trichocereus Genus Image

Trichocereus comes from the Greek term “thrix,” meaning “hair or hairy,” and “cereus,” meaning “candle.” It was first described by Vincenzo Riccobono in 1909 but was initially proposed by Alwin Berger in 1905. In 1974, botanist H. Friedrich concluded that Trichocereus and Echinopsis flowers were the same types. This was when Trichocereus was reclassified under the Echinopsis genus.
