Alien Cactus

Question

Hello,

I got this cactus last year and I cannot find its name.

Anyone?

Thank you!

It's a Ferocactus. Could be Ferocactus glaucus, but not entirely sure which one it is.

I have done some more research and it looks more like Gymnocalycium type.

Maybe a variety of Gymnocalycium Oenanthemum.Gymnocalycium_oenanthemum.thumb.png.7e16183a1da84e1d693d2cc0dbe95fa3.png
However, I cannot find a picture of one that looks exactly the same.

Thank you for your help anyway!

Nope, it is definitely a Ferocactus. Google Images is a very bad tool to identify cacti. This rib structure is only present on Ferocactus and Gymnocalycium look totally different at this size.

 

Ferocactus+glaucescens+-+Blue+Barrel+Cac

Hey again,

I found those two cacti in a shop:

Probably "Echinopsis" but which variety.
The first looks like an "Echinopsis Lageniformis"

I am not sure about the second.

First one is a Myrtillocactus geometrizans and the second one is a Trichocereus terscheckii.
