Cacti ID help ( a sweet find????)
    #3691768 - 01/28/05 01:43 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Ok, so everytime I go to my one of local plant shop/nurseries I check the cacti section FIRST, every time, just in case something cool is there.

Most of their stuff comes from the same grower, a couple of towns over, and whats annoying is that everything comes marked "Cactus", or "Succulent", but thats about where all the details stop.

And while I can tell what some opituna look like, and that many of the little round cacti arent peyote(I am not sure what they are, but I know what they are not)

I feel I can spot a Cacti in the Trichocereus family, fairly easily, and for 34$ for 3 massize cacti ,I figure that even if they arent Peruvians , they might work well for grafting (maybe its T bridgesi ??, or something, I dont know, and at the nursery.....well........"you know alot more about these cacti then me Sir, sorry, maybe the internet ???" , and then went off to go buy some guano)


So, if I found a pedro like cacti (columnar cacti?? ) that has a duller green colour then my dark green pedro, longer, grey-ish) spines, and fat ribs that scream trichocereus, however this is the first cacti I have ever tried to ID.
What is it???
(as long as we can be sure its at LEAST a trichocereus I WILL buy it, and eventually get pics if I have to, and then I will go back for the other 3)

I have one pot(3 of these, on hold until feb 7th, so I would like to figure this out before then .... and yes I will do some of my own reading as well to

I call on the cacti sages, please help.

Ok , after looking at lots of pictures, I think it could one of these......a T.bridgesii , T.cuzcoensis , T.peruvianus , OR maybe even a.... T.macrogonus.

I reached this conclusion by looking at this site ... http://www.columnar-cacti.org/trichocereus/index.html

But I am still confuzed.

Long, and a light colour(I wish I would have taken a better look, at least I have them on hold)

And after some more pics I am pretty sure its not T.macrogonus.


I have narrowed it down to T.bridgesii , T.cuzcoensis ,or T.peruvianus.
(I hope thats right)
