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.

Alrighty!! Been a long time but i figured here was the best place to ID these guys i found at the nursery. Shorter green ones on the bottom left are pachanoi I think, but what are the other paler ones behind and on the right? Peruvian or Bolivian torch? The spines were black for the most part.

Does anybody eat those Cacti as a test for Magic Alkaloids?

 

Years ago, just a few,I remember when we could order  Torch, San Pedro cacti and cuttings.A few years before that one could order the real thing; the Williamsi (sp). Those were the days.

 

Are all active Cacti illegal now?I have always wanted to try them...

 

GREAT THREAD... kudos for all the interested folks. 

Thanks to all you contributors...let's keep this thread cooking!

First one bottom (and in the second picture) is i think Copiapoa

 

Where you said Peruvian that looks to be Myrtillocactus geometrizans (blue myrtle)

 

The last one i think is Tephrocactus articulatus f. inermis

Blue myrtle

 

The green ones do indeed have something of a really dried out pedro, but could be cereus sp. too

Yeah looks like T. Pachanoi. You should ask the neighbor if you can take the broken peice to care for it and give it a new home. It looks like you are in the right area where you can take that peice and have your own 8 ft monster in a few years.

Agreed Pachanoi

 

You will hear the term PC Pachanoi   or Predominant Cultivar Pachanoi  which means the most common and commonly accepted "type" of the named cactus. Best indicators are the fat ribs, tiny and white spines, notches between the areoles are nearly flat.

 

The specimens in the pic are PC

 

Those are really nice columns for being grown outdoors. If the owner will let you have the fallen one you'll have no problem getting it to root.

Hi, please can you help provide information about this cactus?

Thanks

High probability of PC Pachanoi. Very badly kept, not unhealthy but not strong either.

TRICHOCEREUS PACHANOI

 

I dropped mine on it's head, still trying to recover it.

Wish I could say the dog did it, but it was all me.  

I was clumbsy and knocked it off the table.

Damn!! That sucks Spooner, but I am tempted to 'POKE' fun at you a bit. (sorry, I couldn't deny myself at least one joke)

You got to be more careful my friend... Sending you, and cacti both healing vibes brother ;)

Though I got to know, which one came out worse. Your head, or the trich.....?
