peruvian torch I.D: plze help
    #2164475 - 12/06/03 04:54 PM (13 years, 1 day ago)

Um I think I found a long spine peruvian torch catus. Im not 100% sure because Im kinda new to I.D'ing cacti.

I found it at the corner store when I was buying smokes. There was a plant display right by the front counter and I thought "wouldnt it be funny if they had some Trichocereus cacti for sale" and it turns out they did, well at least I think its one.

Here is a couple pics, If you guys have any detailed questions you need to ask to help with the I.D just ask :smile: thanks for your help

i've grown a good number of peruvian torches, but i've never seen any that short and fat. they are usually taller and slender. under the right growing conditions, i guess they could grow to be short and fat.
the spines on all of mine have a very noticable red tint running from the base to about 1/4 of the way up the spine.

it's a nice cactus.

thats true, they dont look like your typical torches. But I have seen a few of them that were squat like that, I could only find this one crappy  image of short and fat torches (they are in the background) maybe my cactus is a different type of Trichocereus? or it could just be a nice regular cactus :cool:  myabe i should just eat it and find out :smirk: jk

hah. once, i had that same thought many years ago. then, i thought "even if it's not a trich, it will still be a good healthy meal."  i couldn't have been more wrong. it tasted like shit and i woke up in the middle of the night to release some bright green squirts that looked like half-cooked okra. i'll never eat another unidentified cactus again.

yeah I know that now :smirk:

I would say nuero is right and that it's a Stetsonia Coryne, or the tooth pick cactus.  I was wrong about it being a preruvian torch and it's not even in the Trichocereus family, but it does contain mescalin according to erowid and this chart I found. It is one of the weaker types though.
