I purchased my first two cacti for my collection and received them in the mail just a few days ago. I wouldn't mind having my pachanoi identified as well. The add specified they grew it from their own confirmed non-pc pachanoi. What do you guys think?

I don't think that's a pachanoi... I do, however, think you got ripped off.

That isn't what I wanted to hear at all. We live and learn I guess. Any ideas as to what it is? I have limited cacti/succulent experience (obviously) lol. I want to learn though of course. Thank you.

Maybe another angle could help?

Agreed. In the first pic I wanted to call it a candle but the second pic made me think differently. Just give it some time and we will see.

theres a local herb shop near me, and as much as people love having a local herb shop, i as an herbalist, have never been impressed. some shady things going on, old bunk products, 5+ year old dust on everything, not knowledgeable about their products, overpriced, etc. anyway, ive known they sell cacti cuts, but have assumed them to be PC pachanoi, based on my own biased opinion of their business operation.
 luckily, my friend bought a cutting from them a few years ago, grew it out a bit, and gave me a cutting, so i didnt have to waste any money to investigate.
 im no cacti expert, i havent ever seen a confirmed PC to compare with, but i have grown several pachanoi and bridgesii, and a few peruvianus and werdermannianus from seeds. the cutting my friend gave me is much lighter shades of green, with super small uniform spines...looks nothing like my other trichs. i still think its a PC....

heres some pics. yes i know it is etoliating, and my apologies for the quality, thats as close as i can get with my camera and stay in focus. does this look like a PC to you guys?
thanks!

thanks, thats what i thought!
yeah idk what im doing with him right now... he started a lil bump of a root a couple months ago, so i put it in that lil pot on a heat mat under lights, but it stopped root growth and started shooting upwards all lankey-like. i was actually considering putting it in a shoe box in a cool closet till spring, see if that would coax the roots out. i get like 4 hours of overcast sunlight each day this time of year, and it was in about as bright of lighting i can provide indoors... still etoliated... my bulbs must be old or something.

In general, I think that growing that genus under grow lights in the winter is a mistake and leads to etiolation.

I would just put it somewhere cool with no direct light and wait til spring to coax growth out of it.

Hello share the seeds community,

Im new here and am excited to be apart of this forum. I just purchased some cacti a few days ago and am wondering if they are non-PC. I have three alleged Pachanoi's, two of them are from the same nursery and are genetically identical. The other one is from a different nursery grown in the same conditions and looks genetically different then the first two. The first picture is of my recent cacti purchase as a bunch. The next two are a side and a top view of a cactus from one nursery and the last two are a side and a top view of a cactus from another nursery. I appreciate any opinions from the members. Thank you

I'm going to have to respectfully disagree.

The bottom two photos of a cactus that was apparently bought from a separate nursery than the other trichos seems to show non-pc characteristics. It has V cuts over the areoles and the spines are longer than most PC pachanoi I've ever seen(including my own). Although the trichos in the other photos seem to have the same kind of spines....just without the V cut.
 I admit it doesn't look EXACTLY like what I would expect of non-pc...BUT...as we all know there are variations, especially in the non-pc "realm".
So my guess is you have a possible non-pc in the bottom 2 photos. Although, whatever they are(most likely a mix/hybrid of some kind) they are absolutely beautiful specimens in my opinion.

ENJOY!!!

*And can someone please explain to me(maybe in a PM) what the heck I have to do to earn some karma over here? I contribute too!...lol.*
