Just recording the start of the season Sorry for the artsy shots

New to my heard, Pachycereus marginatus - picked up this nice straight 1.2m beauty for $25. Needs watering hah. Liking the shadows from the other plants in the late afternoon light.

Thanks guys, will definitely take pics of the flowers. I have a few different varieties of echinopsis I hope will flower this year :)

I actually didn't grow those trich weirdos myself, they came from a random nursery, and I was unable to get any lineage details off the owners. Still plan to visit the nursery in person one day to check out the parent plants if they'll let me. They only cost me a couple of dollars each, I should have bought more of them dammit, but when I purchased I was skeptical of them being cereus.
