That was my plan, try to source a button and get it into a pot...from there it can be babied and hardened off correctly....I have a bowl of succulents that need to be replanted so was hoping to do the cactus in with them when the temps turn a bit cooler and its the right time to move them around...next question, where do I source a Lophophora williamsii, and know fosure I have the right cacti ?

The cereus should be a good test of the growing conditions. I'd guess the salient consideration would be how high is the water table there and how high is the highest possible flood level, heaven forbid, then I'd go a foot higher than that. But that's me  :)

Hi guys - I have these babies *guess 2 years old, 3-4 inches tall) and I'm pretty sure they must be one of the following as I ordered the seeds years ago...

 

Trichocereus Macrogonus

Trichocereus SS02 (Bridgesii) x Peruvianus "Serra Blue" Hybrid

Trichocereus Pachanoi

 

And then there's a fourth mystery one....

 

Which one is which?!?

 

A
B
C
D

 

 

Could really need some help on this one ... Cheers!

I don't think there's a Pachanoi in that bunch.  The five ribbed thing could be but the spines look too long and too brown

 

The look of cactus changes considerably in their third year and/or afterward.

 

All of those look like some kind of hybrid

 

If there's a macrogonus in the bunch it's showing no signs of being monstrose
