I think its a Parodia, maybe P. carambeiensis


Yes it does look that way, good call, perhaps even Parodia ottonis now that you mentioned it. Thanks teesus........................ :teeth:

I don't think we have this yet.
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.
Sound good ?
I need this ID'd, Not sure if its a trich. Close but not sure. Torch , achume ,bridgesii...... I know it is not a padro ? or is it ?
Thanks peeps !

hey doodaa! i think i figured that plant out. Neoraimondia herzogiana

Hey all out there from australia. I happen to come across a rather large and old looking cactus as i was driving past and at a quick glance thought it might have been san pedro or peruvian torch. Went down today to have a closer look and get a photo and now i'm not so convinced unfortunately. After a bit of research (i'm very new to this) am leaning towards cereus peruvianus. Any input or ideas on it would be greatly appreciated. heres the pic and it hasSAM_1043 (640x480).jpg 5 ribs.

After looking up Neoraimondia Herzogiana as teesus suggested for dooda i think that one that i have found and have pictured the post before may well be the same species but it's gotta be quite old i'd say. What does everyone think? Peace people.

you're welcome. the sticky was a good idea

srinpav, welcome a the forum! i think you were right with your first id. Cereus peruvianus or validus or forbesii would be my guess

nice to see this thread utilised.
still wondering what type of echinopsis is in my first pic.
the more i look at pictures of eyriesii
the more i'm think that's it's a hybrid
or another sp.

edit: why so Cereus?

because id is cereus business:ballbat:
you mean why i think its cereus? because of the overall look of the plant, its colour, the thin ribs, rather small areoles. i'm not shure as always. i'm only into cactus since 6 years and still learning

yes, its very widespread cultivar apparently and is somewhat the standart pachanoi in many parts of the world, but seems to be a different plant than what was originally described as Trichocereus pachanoi by britton and rose. the 'original' pachanoi apparently looks more like the trichocereus in gardenboys first post. to differentiate the botanical correct pachanoi from the plant commonly known as pachanoi the later has been dubbed with different names by the cactus experts on the forums: backeberg clone, predominant cultivar (pc) or pachanot.

CACTUS2.jpg

These came from a plant that was easily 50+ years old. They are cuttings that were transplanted. What are they and does the age carry over and make a difference in active contents? Thanks!!

it looks like as some kind of Echinopsis/ Trichocereus. something like T. candicans or T. huascha maybe. those seedpod looking things are probably flower buds.

Nice find :)
I like this idea separate post for iding then stick them in the sticky maybe easier to edit ?
and talk about one b4 adding another id so close to another one I love the sticky id thread idea we can use this idea for wild mushrooms forum too :) we get a lot of thoes posts
.... was trying to think of a way to better organize wild finds plant / mushrooms here at Mycotopia
We have many experts here willing to help id ... but we need more info that is clear and organized to do a little iding for ourselves too when we learn a little for ourselves to know what we are looking for :)

Hello TIZ,
You got issues with people trying to get at your loph's ? Guard dogs And a gun comes to mind ! Joking ! Well not really.
If ya got other pix from your friends garden and need to identify, post them at the sticky for cacti ID. It's at the top of the botanicals forum. It's there just for this purpose. Sorry you already know this, my bad !
That cacti in your pic is beautiful. I can't help ya on the ID, but it is a nice specimen !
GLUK on finding more beauties !
