Is this Peruvian Torch?

No it's not, but it's a Pedro and I think there might be T. Scopulicola genetics in it, which would be awesome to.
Where did you get it from?

 

Edit: and an extremely healthy and beautiful specimen you got there too!

Thank you :)

 

I got it from a guy at a cannabis club meeting. I said I was looking for a San Pedro and he said he'd bring me a cutting to make sure I had the "right type" of cactus. It was a gift and he said it was Peruvian Torch so I'm sure he believed it was. That was over 7 years ago and I wouldn't be able to find that guy now.

 

I have since discovered it is a good San Pedro :)  just wondered what it's called.

to my eye it's Pachanoi but don't know exactly what kind

 

Pachanoi almost always have tiny whitish spines of less than half an inch

 

These days there are soooooooooo many hybridized columns around it's getting hard to do valid identifications without having a pure genetic sample to do a side by side comparison with.

 

Regardless, that's a nice healthy specimen

I'm bidding on this crest but not sure what kind it is. Theyre saying its an "echinopsis subdenudata variegata cristata - crested astrophytum ariocarpus" which is obviously a cover. I can see it being an astrophytum, what do you all think? Im also bidding on a bridgesii monstrous long form

They do fine on their own roots.
As for the long form, can you see any spines?
Alot of sellers will cut off just the spinless section.. you need spines.

I got this cutting about a year ago from someone in my neighborhood. They said it was there when they moved in. This one was growing between two boards in their picket fence. The bottom 1/3 of the column was covered in white paint that I scrubbed off.

 

I thought it was a T peruvianus but now I'm not so sure. Any ideas?

 

Sorry about the rotated photos. I can't, for the life of me, figure out how to correct that.

It sure looks a lot like the T. bridgesii which is in my care.

Pad arrangement and felt color are near identical.

Thorn arrangement and length are also near identical.

 

Mine was a gift from a long-time Trichocereus cultivator.

 

Re: rotated photos

It is due to the image size (I think). Not much you can do about it.

Excellent photos!!! Very clear. Very detailed. No worries that they're horizontal.

Right on, thanks for weighing in Myc. I hadn’t even considered that it might be a bridge. Are you able to post a photo of yours?

Yeah, I’ve noticed a bunch of posts with rotated images. Oh well. Thank you, it’s crazy how nice phone’s cameras are!

I'm going to agree with Myc that it looks like a Bridgesii. I have several peruvians and bridgesii and the spineing seems correct.

Here is a picture from a few years back of a few from my collection for comparison.....

(the spines on the bridgesii have been trimmed for handling and shipping)

Looks like I got mine to post upright ! ?? Oh, well.

 

I was a lucky recipient of the offerings featured in Skywatcher's photo.

Here is T. bridgesii producing offsets this year in full sunshine. I may make tea for the first time in many, many years. It's about time for a journey.

 

Hope this helps.

Thanks Skywatcher!!!

I've got three varieties in the same pot and have been letting the root-balls get more established.

Next year, I will part them out and give each one its own larger pot to grow into. Trichos like the summer heat here and grow very well. I just have to bring everything in for winter since it gets too cold outside.

 

Each variety is producing offsets.

My plan is to trim the parent stock as the summer wanes. Then more offsets will form next year from the stumps (as you well know).

I'm especially curious about that Icaros clone. She is in a separate pot already and is also producing offsets. I'll probably brew an admixture of all 4 varieties and share with friends.

Thanks for posting the photos Myc. That's a great looking plant! I can definitely see the similarities you described. 

 

I appreciate your input Skywalker. I went by the mother plant to see if it was flowering and the owner had chopped off a couple feet from the 3 tallest tips. Damn! I was bummed to have missed out on some more cuttings and the chance to see flowers.

If this is a regular thing........and you know your neighbor fairly well.........

You should learn how to prune a trichocereus so as to produce prolific offsets with a single cut.

I have a thread around here somewhere - where I drew a line with sharpie - detailing how, where, and why to cut a plant. A strong root-ball produces strong offsets and it would be nice to capitalize on a neighbor's happy fortune.

The harvested chunk is (of course) disposed of by boiling, straining, and running through the digestive tract. 

As for flowers, I understand that they only last for one or two nights.

They are the holy grail of my propagation efforts. ...........But I've only seen pics thanks to the kind folks here.
