PC, I have read that when the cactus receives less light (like in the winter months) the top gets thinner. To supposedly prevent this you would water less in the winter.

Perhaps the cactus is getting more light and the opposite is happening?

Just a guess.

Like someone else said, when the cacti are in a period of growth with little light they grow thinner, when they get more light they grow thicker, making it look somewhat bulbous.  I've got one outside right now where the middle of the branch is a couple of inches wide and the top is 2 or 3 inches wider.  It looks funny:)

I don't care about jack shit, I just wanna pick my nose!!!

Seed-grown pete's always have a really narrow base, but they usually fatten up pretty quickly. Once they're large enough, you could cut off and re-plant the growing tip, if it bothers you. From there they'll stay more symmetrical, unless the afore-mentioned light-deprivation scenario occurs.

I think its not a san pedro for one thing...maybe something in the peruvianus complex? A clearer picture would help, from this one it almost looks as if the top section is grafted on. I've seen larger trich's put out new branches from an un-cut growing tip like this...I guess it probably happens with seedlings sometimes, too. That's my best guess, anyway. Whatever the case, it sure does look cool!

It's definetly not San Pedro, the thorns are way too long. The newer growth is probably getting a lot more light than the lower part did, if you use a fertilizer, use it about once a month durring the growing season, and make sure it is a 20-20-20 fertilizer.

i agree with pimp both about light and about its not being a san pedro. it looks more like a _cereus_ peruvianus or something... althought it may be a trichocereus peruvianus...

i hate wit sigs / if anything i say has something in common with reality, this is a merely a coincidence.

Its definitely not a cereus species...most likely trichocereus, but possibly something closely related like echinopsis, the genus which tricho's "technically" belong to.

I agree that's definately not a san pedro and probably not a cereus. It could possibly be a some kind of trichocereus, but something doesn't look quite right to me. Activity is doubtful.

I'd try posting the pic to rec.gardens.cacti newsgroup, as there's some pretty knowledgeable people hang about there.

Take care

Phil

What is it that makes you think its not a trichocereus, if you don't mind me asking?

I didn't say it wasn't a trichocereus, just that I was doubtful. Cactus ID is definately not my strongest point.

Basically I worked through a process of elimination, as I figured if it was a trichocereus then is was likely to be either a Bridgesii, a pachanoi, or a peruvianus. It obviously looks nothing like a bridgesii or a pachanoi as the spines are completely wrong, and I'm doubtful about a peruvianus, as in PC's photo the areoles seem to be protruding from the cactus, and on a peruvianus I would expect the opposite.

Anyway, that's my reasoning, but as I said I could easilly be wrong. I think rec.gardens.caci is probabyl the best bet for a more reliable ID.

Take care

Phil

Post your pic on the cacti and succulents forum at www.gardenweb.com someone will be able to ID it for you, they really know their shit over there.

hey pc I think when a columnular cactus is smaller at the base it has been grown from seed and not a pup or cutting, I could be wrong though, thats what the lady told me at the cactus place, it looks like a tricocereus peruvianus, but not exactly.
Also it has whit tufts of hair or somethin in the spines and that will help narrow down the id a bit I think, maybe check to see what a t. bridgesii looks like, I dunno, I'm a dummy pretty much......
Hey I took another looksie and the top is ballooned out like maybe when it was first grown it was not recieving enough light and nutrients but when you got ahold of it it started having supergrowth, do you live on top of an a buried nuclear plant or something??????
