Question

Anyone know what this is, i've had a look around and think it may be a trichocereus tersheckii, but thats a fairly uneducated guess. Any help ID'ing would be appreciated.

Regards.

Doesn't look like terscheckii to me. I've never seen a blue terscheckii, and although the outer spines look terscheckioid, the central ones look too long. It's got something in common with cuzco and tercheckioid forms imho. Can't offer any help other than that, and for all I know others might chip in and say that there IS a particular terscheckii strain that looks like that.

Yeah I wasn't convinced myself hence the post, I saw a post someone made about a cuzco ID the other day and it had very similar features to this one but still slightly different. Thanks for the speedy reply anyway!

Cool looking plant, interesting/complicated arrangement. I'm stumped.

It looks like Browningia hertlingiana to me.

Tripsis is on the money.

A nice plant imo, a slow grower from what i have seen, my one seems to get a lil rot if too moist in winter though it is in the ground, semi shaded. Im sure in a better position it could grow a little faster but it doesnt seem to have the same vigour as the trichos next to it.

Thanks everyone, Tripsis the Browningia hertlingiana certainly seems to fit the bill. I haven't ever heard of one before but its definitely one of my favourite cacti from my collection. Love its spines!

PD mines getting a fair amount of water at the moment so I'm glad mentioned they don't like it to wet I think i'll move it accordingly.

it is azureocereus hertlingianus by my eye.

but that could synonymous with Browningia hertlingianae.
