Hi Endlessness,

Nice plant and log keeping here. Thanks for testing the matucana peruvianus, please keep us posted about the results of the quantitative analysis. Also it would be valuable if you could let us know in the future whether the cacti are tolerant to the winter conditions where you planted them.

In my humble opinion the plant labelled matucana pachanoi back at the beginning of this post is most likely a matucana peruvianus. The pachanoi from matucana tends to have a reverse serration/buzzsaw pattern with very short spination in younger plants, which almost dissappears as the plants mature. The ribs are also quite flattened against the stem, making the plant look quite rounded or "fat" when looked from above. So far as I heard and read matucana peruvianus are also very strong and have a euphoric and energetic feeling to their experience. It can always be a hybrid between the matucana pachanoi and the peruvianus of this locality as well, in which case the offspring might be morphologically indistinguishable from the peruvianus parents.

Keep up the good work and happy gardening Thumbs up

Thanks friends!

Ahubaba, it might very well be mislabelled as pachanoi but be a matucana peruvianus, thanks for sharing your thoughts! It looks different than the other matucana peruvianus I have but from my little experience, there can be quite some variation between specimens of supposedly the same species, only looking at maybe hundreds of them, one can see patterns that go beyond the individual variations.

Also, considering some of these cuttings came from some or other supplier, I don't know how trustable the identification really is, so I take it with a grain of salt.

I'll mostly just care about whether they grow well in my area and whether they have a good amount of mescaline Smile

Im posting below my little veggie garden that is next to the cact, then my lone peyote, and the stone wall where Im starting to grow some herbs between the cracks, like lavender, mint, lemon balm, thyme, rosemary, etc..
