I have it listed as Hildewintera colademononis, but Ming has it right with the new genus, Cleistocactus.

Beautiful plant...never heard of it. Please if it develops seeds capture them. I know some of "US" would love babies!(or cuttings) but hate to mutilate beauty!

If you look in the background, you can see a rat tail as well.

Yep I can see your rats tail there. I got mine as a cutting on ebay and it's doing really well in the greenhouse. I've actually taken some offshoots and started a new one. I'm not a great lover of cacti or succulents but I do like the trailing type

Nil,

I'm going to visit the folks who discovered it tomorrow, as it happens. I'll let them know what a fabulous plant you have there.

For a plant that not long ago was very hard to come by in the US, it certainly did make a different impression this weekend when I was at the Inter-City Show & Sale at the LA Arboretum! No fewer than 5 vendors were selling them...there were so many, I'm sure there were lots left over after all was said and done! Would never have believed it only a couple years ago!

So glad it is becoming more available in the states!
