Based on the bleaching of the lower spines I'm almost inclined to guess T. cuzcoensis.

That is what I'm kind of leaning towards but most bridgesii that I've seen tend to have more spines in total than these. I've read rumors of bridgesii being crossed with other varieties back in the 70's but I don't know if there is any truth to that. I really appreciate the input though! I think we're on the right track! Perhaps more nexians will weigh in with their opinions. Drool

At first I thought PC from the top pics, based on the aerols 'pointy' nature. But the bottom pics are definitely showing some bridge characteristics.

These things are difficult to say with certainty when young and scrawny like they are

Looks like bridgesii to me. Which is probably good news.

Looks like you've got yourself some Bridgesii's. They could be an open cross as well. They are still a little young to be certain. The large downward spine and then honey color spines with a bit of red at the end are indicative of Bridgesii. Spine length and number (3-5) make me lean towards Bridgesii as well. Nothing to be disappointed about. Give them another year or two and we should be able to give a better id.

They have been grown indoors in the winter(gets down to -20 with windchill here) and the first summer that I had them I grew them in indirect sunlight on the back porch due to concerns/paranoia. I finally came around considering I can't even ID these things with any real degree of accuracy so I've been putting them right on the front porch for the last 2 summers and you can see that they are loving it. The only downfall is that they are becoming top heavy at the moment. I just brought them back in for the year, which is what prompted the inquiry. They just kept staring at me until finally I realized something was a little off from the sellers description. Unfortunately I do not recall the grower at this point. I either bought it off amazon or perhaps ebay at the time. Oh well. I think they are happy little cacti and I hope to get them growing more steady/balanced here soon. Thanks again for all of the lovely responses!

You could have taken pictures of the plant before harvesting it.

In either case, please dont steal plants from people's yards.

Go to sharetheseeds and grow your own, and/or buy cuttings elsewhere.

Though its hard to determine from pictures if I had to give you a second opinion I would say that its NOT a trichocereus pachanoi or a trichocereus peruvianus or a trichocereus macrogonus, it actually looks similar to a Cereus peruvianus, but again its hard to say.

Well, at the risk of sounding like a broken record, I feel the need to share my thoughts as well..

I will have to say that this is surely NOT a Trichocereus cacti... Like mentioned above, quite possibly a Cereus... I am no expert though...

More importantly, your "neighbors" are now short a beautiful cactus top due to your greediness and lack of care... Which is a big shame.. I don't mean to come off as judgmental, but I find this act of cutting someone else's cactus down for your own wants and needs is a disrespectful and heinous act, especially involving something meant to be such a powerful and healing cacti.. In this case, it wasn't even the correct cactus..

Might I suggest you returning that cactus to the rightful owner? Tis a shame they are short a cactus top due to your lack of care and repsrct...

Anyways, I just find the act of stealing peoples entheogens defeats the sole purpose of what these plant teachers have to offer.... Its like using bad energy to steal it while expecting good energy out of it... In this case you cut into someone's (prized?) non-psychedelic Cacti in their yard...


Please be more aware of your actions and intent... Care and respect are greatly valued here...

much love.

E.O.

looks like a possible peruvian apple but those get a little more blue i think. Not active, you should kindly replant that poor guy and hope he continues on with his life

This may sound a bit harsh, but i for one am glad the cacti you stole was inactive.
What if that was a peruvian torch, pedro, or achuma?
Then you'd have stolen what someone else worked for, for what could have been years, & probably held very sacred, for your own personal gain.
To me thats just laziness, cacti cuttings with good genetics are not that hard to find, not highly expensive, & are well worth the work it takes to grow them yourself.

You would be surprised at how generous a lot of people are with their plants if you asked for some
