Cereus Monstrose or is it Cereus peruvianus monstrose

Question

Whats People's thoughts on this one.

I would like to sell it it but i want to know exactly what it is.

I did sell a cutting of this about 10 years ago on Epray, 

I sold it under Cereus peruvianus monstrose

But the buy never got back to me? So they must of been happy:lol:

 

My believe it is Cereus Monstrose but i could be wrong..

These are the only pics i have at the moment.

This a cutting over 50cm in length.

Cereus is just the genus.  Plant names are "Genus + species" e.g. Trichocereus + bridgesii.  And monstrose is a description of the form or variety if you know what I mean.

So saying that, it looks to me like Cereus peruvianus monstrose ( or maybe Cereus hildemanianus monstrose, but for all I know they might even be the same plant as Cereus peruvianus monstrose, I'm no expert on taxonomy thats for sure)

 

It looks just like my one I call Cereus peruvianus monstrose, but it just depends how anally retentive you get about names I think.  Technically Cereus monstrose is still right if you don't give a shit about being super accurate with naming it.

 

Hope that helps for now......I'm sure someone else can jump in with a bit more of a decisive opinion :)
