Feel free to post pics here if you're unsure of what you got!
Here are three of mine, that I am unsure of. I'm pretty sure the last on is a san pedro.

A sticky that we can post photos of cacti we acquire. so that there isnt a bunch of threds (What do i have) Just to keep it clean and one place to post pix to identify.

Yea, i was thinking torch but with those red spines i was not sure !
Thank you sears hardware !
I bounce around to local garden sections to see if they got anything intresting.
This other place has a bishop's cap. Also seen a Donana Well it's what i think it is. I gotta snatch those puppies up !

I totally forgot about that other thread. I did read it and also posted to it.
Well it happens sometimes:rasta:
Thank you badger, no bubble bust ! Glad you were able to set us straight !
I'd rather know then to guess !
Yea , as stated in my post, i was Leary and thats why i asked.
my Brothers and sisters at topia ! I though it should be more blue to be a torch.
Also the spines, the color of new spines to be exact. And the tuff at the base of the spines.
If i missed anything on discription please tell me, to better my ability of IDing on my own !
Ask the right questions and you shall receive !
The more i post and the more i visit, the more i love this place !
Na i was happy to save this specimen from eventual death. Did not matter if it was active or not !
Half the cacti at that place was drowning. i dumped the water from their pots to let them live !. What they water and let them sit in a no holes in the bottom pot to drowned ? I had to save them from certain death !
Hope this ID thred works for all !
