Cactus Identification!
    #3762896 - 02/10/05 06:35 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Anyone have any clue as to the type of cactus this is?

The spines have now been chopped off but were about an inch and a half long.. very nasty looking

Looks to have two spines per areole with no central spine. Is that correct? If so it is quite odd as it appears otherwise to be a T. bridgesii, a plant that generally has three spines and lacking a central. I'll lay money on it being a T. bridgesii regardless.

Greetings Michael, Had a question about the Trich Inermis that are out on the market now, I was wondering if you have any links or literature that makes references to this species as I have yet to find it searching through trouts work. Thanks.

The plant being sold as T. inermis is T. harrissima (aka T. brevispinulosis) and is not that closely related to T. bridgesii at all to be considered a "variety," as some have said it is.

The term "inermis" means spineless and the name "T. bridgesii var. inermis" has been applied to monstrose T. bridgesii which lack regular spination, and so the confusion as to why this "T. inermis" is a variety of T. bridgesii. Simple.

I thought I addressed this with the dealer of the plant, but I guess they like making sales more than spreading accurate information.

bridgesii usually has 3 spines per areole, one being very long

i'm having problems trying to post a picture, google 'Trichocereus bridgesii'

/edit actually google just brings up a lot of monstrose forms which will probably confuse you

visit this link to see a standard T bridgesii: http://www.columnar-cacti.org/trichocereus/t7.jpg

The T. bridgesii at the columnar-cacti site was Bob Ressler's (he's moved and doesn't have the collection any longer) and like all the photos of the Trichocereus at the site they are quite dehidrated and therefore may not appear true to form when watered adequately.

There are other T. bridgesii that clearly have thinner spines and a clear central. There seems to be some variation in the species with the most common one being like pictured below.

This is one of my own T. bridgesii which is not at maximum diameter.
