I found what I believe to be some sort of trichocereus spec. growing on Lanzarote.

I was also able to collect some seeds! Big grin

Can someone help me with ID?

I could be wrong but i don't think it's a trichocereus, you'll be luckier next time Smile

I thought the flower looked quite similar... of cause its not a pachanoi or peruvianus, but there are quite a few Trichocereus species that I didn't see adult specimen from and I thought it might be one of them.
If it is not Trichocereus, then what genus could it be?

The fruit is pretty delicius though Laughing

Also it's a beautiful cactus, so I'll try to grow the seeds, whatever they are and active or not Smile

The first pic looks like a tric to me, look at a few google images. Echinopsis peruviana as a search term turned up a few that were fairly close but without a detailed botanical description of the plant it's very difficult to say. A better close-up of the flower in the first picture would have been helpful. That's not to say I'd be of any further use were this to have been the case :/

The second picture does not look like a Trichocereus and is also of a poorer resolution, again making identification more difficult. I'm guessing the two pictures are of two different specimens at separate locations?

It'll be interesting to see what the seeds produce in any case...

I've been looking out for this thread for a while as I have a few specimens at home that I'd like to I.D.

#1 A lovely Mammillaria:

#2 Some generic supermarket cactus, unknown genus (?Echinocereus):

#3 Very probably a Pachycereus pringlei, these are very commonly sold these days:

#4 A little Mammillaria, sadly rather battered in transit (and the photo isn't that great either!):

#5 Unknown genus number 2:

#6 Unknown genus number 3:

#7 Unknown genus number 4:

Any pointers for these would be most welcome!

“There is a way of manipulating matter and energy so as to produce what modern scientists call 'a field of force'. The field acts on the observer and puts him in a privileged position vis-à-vis the universe. From this position he has access to the realities which are ordinarily hidden from us by time and space, matter and energy. This is what we call the Great Work."

If we have not obtained immortality, at least we have obtained reality. We began in a fairytale and we came to life! But is this life reality? We are images, dreams, photographs. We must not stay here! Prisoners! We shall break the illusion. This is Maya. Goodbye to the holy mountain. Real life awaits us." ~ Alejandro Jodorowsky

@nicita: I'm not quite sure but look into T. taquimbalansis or tacaquierensis. At first glance it looked like a terscheckii but the diameter of the cactus makes me think otherwise.

Are the photos all of the same plant?

@Sakkadelic, it's not a Trichocereus. It could be Polaskia chichipe but I make no guarantees that's correct.

probably something along the lines of a Cereus peruvianus.

Hey guys, can anyone ID these for me ? Partially for my Daughter, who is starting to collect Cacti & partially for me, who would like to try a cactus journey someday. 😊
