Cactus ID?

Posted by brian_grow 5 (My Page) on

The nursery couldn't give me an ID beyond maybe a Trichococerus or Cereus. It has many characteristics of a T. cuzcoensis.

Its about 15" tall and with 7 ribs.

Any ideas?

It is an interesting addition and will be loved.

RE: Cactus ID?

I'm not too knowledgable on columnar cactus, but I have a source who agrees with Pilosocereus pachycladus. Below are images for comparison...

Here is a link that might be useful: Pilosocereus pachycladus

RE: Cactus ID?

its a type of Trichococerus peruvianus (peruvian torch cactus) the plant I've been looking for! For identifying it, that'll cost you a cutting of it :p (kidding)

good luck.

RE: Cactus ID?

I agree...

RE: Cactus ID?

This is indeed a Pilosocereus pachycladus.
