I thought it was a graft I got no knowledge of grafting. The reason I thought bridgesii is the long spines but I really don't know much. Maybe Skywatcher or Neptune can ID it and tell us about this color difference what ever it means.

After reading Keeper Trouts books/PDF's on cactus I am more confused than ever.

A cactus with similar color near bottom

I'm not an expert but i would also call this a Echinopsis lageniformis- Bolivian torch Bridgesii.

It doesn't appear to be grafted.

I have had a few seedlings do this color change... although mine have all been the whole cactus going a bluish green not just the tip.

Drastic color change on the same column is common, usually having to do with how much sun or shade it got during the previous growing seasons.


I'm doubtful about a graft as well.

I have no idea how much sun exposure it got or the exact conditions it was growing as I only bought it from a flower shop yesterday, but I believe it got plenty of light cos the weather is ideal here (southern Greece) Believe it was put indoors at night when the shop closed. I don't know if that has anything to do with the color difference.
