This species (Trichocereus bridgesii) is a quick growing columnar cactus native to the high deserts of Bolivia. This species has the ability to grow 2-5 meters tall with stems of up to 15-20 cm in diameter. The indigenous people of Bolivia refer to both the T. bridgesii and T. pachanoi as Ahuma or Wachuma.
