If this is a regular thing........and you know your neighbor fairly well.........

You should learn how to prune a trichocereus so as to produce prolific offsets with a single cut.

I have a thread around here somewhere - where I drew a line with sharpie - detailing how, where, and why to cut a plant. A strong root-ball produces strong offsets and it would be nice to capitalize on a neighbor's happy fortune.

The harvested chunk is (of course) disposed of by boiling, straining, and running through the digestive tract. 

As for flowers, I understand that they only last for one or two nights.

They are the holy grail of my propagation efforts. ...........But I've only seen pics thanks to the kind folks here. 


I wish I knew them better. I might have gotten some warning they were cutting the plant back lol! 


Thanks for mentioning the thread about pruning. I have two bridgesii that need to be cut and I'd love to know how to cut them to produce multiple offsets.
