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.
