Help to ID these 3 Trich

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I've got three different trichocereus and I'd like to identify which species and if possible which cultivar they may be.  The 1st tall one I was given and I'm concerned that it may be a PC, and would appreciate the more informed opinions here.  The smaller (middle-sized one) I'm also concerned may be a PC and was one I bought before knowing to watch out for and avoid PC where possible.  Any thoughts?  The third I bought from a guy called John who lives near Bendigo and has a noteworthy cactus garden.  Apparently it's from a very established old plant.  Any suggestions are most appreciated, thanks:)

Hey mate, happy to look over these. Can you use the forum uploader to upload the pics? It downloads these as zip when I click the links, and it's a bit risky to click unknown zips because there are quite a few viruses that spread like this. :lol:

Yeah sure.  I had trouble uploading the files while 3mb, so now they're smaller and can upload fine.  Hopefully not too much image quality loss.  Thanks:)

First ones are all PC or PC offspring. The last two are Trichocereus bridgesii. :wub: Lovely how spiny this little pup already is.

Awesome thank you.  May I ask what's your thoughts on the PC cultivar?  I hear conflicting reports.  Some say it's devoid of actives, others say it's merely not as strong as others.  Do you you have an opinion?

They make gorgeous stands with hundreds of flowers. :wub: Other than this I cannot provide any insight. Discussion of potency isn't allowed, and I don't want to get into trouble with the mod. ;)
