    Trichocereus tacaquirensis

    Thanks, Glaukus. Looks more like the taquimbalensis Micromegas posted earlier. This stout-spined tacaquirensis is an elusive plant! I'm quite surprised it's not a more popular / sort after species.

    Kombucha

    I sun-dried a few SCOBYs, they turn into this extremely tough, skin- or leather-like substance, which is actually moderately sweet to the taste. But teeth won't cut it -- it's strong, like animal hide. In the mouth it rehydrates with the saliva, texture like that of a really tough mushroom. I think one would need to shred it somehow prior to ingesting. And I'm guessing nobody knows how good (or not) it might be to eat.

    Trichocereus tacaquirensis

    Trichocereus tacaquirensis

    Same plant, goes fuzzy on top. It's a Trichocereus taquimbalensis/ Echinopsis tacaquirensis subs. taquimbalensis. v.diff to chiloensis.

    Trichocereus tacaquirensis

    Sorry Micromegas, only just seen your message. What are those photos of? The first one looks similar to what I'm after, but perhaps not with the stout spines (which I feel would be closer to chiloensis). The second one - is that the same plant? Looks almost like a skinny pasacana.

    Cacti issues (heat?)

    I had some unrooted Tricho tips standing in a pot. One of them fell over in the middle of this crazy heatwave, and in a matter of hours was completely cooked. It will probably survive, but with significant scarring from sunburn. In the vertical position, this cutting was adapted to full-sun conditions (and all of its peers, remaining vertical, suffered no damage at all). Lesson learned.
