Help with ID a cactus
« on: February 05, 2020, 12:33:17 am »

Hello,

can you help me with the ID of that cactus? Or if it cannot be said with certainty - is it at least a sacred cacti?

Thanks!

Looks like some kind of sacred Trichocereus to me... maybe a pach/peru cross

Definitely not PC though :)

I'm not a hundred percent sure on this one but aren't dark brown spines on fresh growth indicative of Couzcoensis?

which I'm not a hundred percent sure of either but think are inactive

sorry to not provide a definitive answer but maybe this will advance a discussion to The Correct answer

I had one back in the day. Very vigorous grower and pretty in a rough sort of way.

I have a very similar looking mystery cactus. I've always put my bets on Peruvian Torch. They've got the long spines and the blue hues. It would seem that inconsistent spine growth, independent of inconsistent environmental conditions, could be indicative of a hybrid.

I'm no expert but the closest I could guess would be Peruvian torch.  It's got the blue, and it's got the spines.  The environment that you grow it in can make it hard to differentiate from other bridgesii varrieties, but I'd bet it's some sort of bridgesii by the looks of it.

Yeah, that's Tetris
