With the color of the epidermis and the bulky look there´s a very high chance that this belongs to the Santa Valley complex. In particular, this reminds me of the plants you see from Ichoca or Chancha.

Yeah, that´s pretty much what I am saying. The species Trichocereus pachanoi can be glaucous, but plants that are THIS glaucous often belong to Trichocereus santaensis. It´s not an important difference because I consider Trichocereus santaensis to be very close to Trichocereus pachanoi, but if your plant really belongs into that complex then it´s much rarer than normal versions of T. pachanoi. The glaucousness is written down as trait in the description of Trichocereus santaensis and the degree of glaucousness changes from plant to plant, and from population to population. Have a look at this plant and compare it to yours. It´s almost an exact match. What makes me so sure is the shape of the areoles and these clunky ribs. You don´t see that very often.

Interesting!

 

and it is very similar indeed but mine does have more spines than that one pictured aswell, I have some other mid cuts that show more spikes than the ones I posted!

 

here is a pup from the exact same plant!

Can´t comment on that because there´s no discussion of potency allowed here. :wink: But yeah, very nice plant. With these spines it can only be something like T. santaensis or a short spine Peruvianus.  I strongly lean towards Santa.
