T. peruvians f. monstrose
http://mycotopia.net...11&d=1146629541
this one is said to be a monstrose peruvians
however, the only other pic i have ever seen of them, looked totally different (different variation?spine coverage was denser and it looked almost crested growing sideways)
can anyone confirm this one for me?
im almost positive it is, but dont want to misinform anyone :naughty:


I bought a cactus just like this one at Lowes for like $.50, sadly I killed it. I'm just no good with cactii.

I think what you're talking about is Trichocereus Scopulicolus I'd like to add a large one to my collection because it is said to be equal in magic to Pachanoi. I think its more common in Europe for some reason.
