Not an active species, good for grafting.

Stetsonia actually contains mescaline according to some sites.
But this is in very low concentration, not usefull for consumption.
I find it a very beautifull cactus, especially the larger specimens. It has huge spines and it is said that these were used as toothpicks.

It looks very much like a Trichocereus Per. to me as well, or at least some of the ones I have come into contact with. I am no expert though. Anybody else have thoughts on this one?

The most prominent distinction are the areoles. Go see a peruvianus picture and compare their size.

The spines are too long for peruvianus and also a different color, the ribs are diferent. Stetsonia is also generally bluer than peruvianus.

It fooled me the first time i saw it tho.

Same here, but ones you know, you'll never forget.
It's really a distinct cactus.

When you've been doing ID's for several years the differences just pop out at you.
