cactus identification
    #2891018 - 07/14/04 08:32 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I've had this cactus for about 6 years and I don't know how old it was before I got it. It was twice as tall as it is now but a friend of mine got beligerantly drunk and broke it a couple years ago. Before, it only had one main trunk that branched off into two towards the top. Since it was broke it has been shooting out pups everywhere with five rows of spines while the original only have two. I was told that this was a Chamaecereus Sylvestri "Peanut Cactus" but it doesn't look like any of the ones I have seen in pics. I was wondering if anyone could help me out with a positive identification and might have a clue as to why the pups have a different appearence.
here is a pic, I can take a better one if I need to.

it's mostly a 4 ribbed cereus right?
i think its cereus chilensis or something like that (have to check my 'the cactaceae' but its awaaay upstairs)... certainly of the cereus genus, although you might find some pictures of look alikes called trichocereus, the real trichocereus chilensis are way fatter and have a t. peruvian-like look...

your variety certainly is very odd - i've never seen such cereus pup like that, they usually have a FEW but long arms...
have it been always like that? or have you taken many cuttings out of it?

it certainly looks to me like someone has, several in fact, in most of the places it is divergent.

If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

the main stalk was broken a few years ago, other than that it grew like that on its own

here's another pic

I don't understand why some have four ribs and some have five and some like this have both :confused:

Looks like Cereus peruvianus to me.
Cacti can vary their rib numbers in response to environmental conditions so just because a cactus has a couple of ribs more or less does not have to mean that it is a different species.

4 ribs cannot be c. peruvianus! 5 could be, one arm of 4 ok but everything 4 ribbed is not a common peruvianus for sure...
