So, what am I?

Question

Always thought this as a PC Pach but not so sure anymore after the reactions to yesterday's flower bud post. It's a plant from Hamilton's bought somewhere back in 2011 and has been in the ground since 2012, moved once when I expanded my outdoors patch.

So, ventured out this afternoon after work to snag a few more shots of it, but first for the "wayback" machine and some older shots.

I thought that apart from white flower hairs, the biggest PC giveaway was the sawtooth profile between upturned areoles, which I do not see on your lovely Hamilton pachanoi.

Hi Snowfella, really a great plant and very nice pics. I love the broad ribs, which is absolutely not typical for a PC. It´s a Pachanoi but it´s more like the broad ribbed Trichocereus Huanucoensis or Pallarensis. It´s not the same but it´s definitely on the list of the broad ribbed Pachanois.

Mate that is a very beautiful pach you have there. I know i for one would be super keen to get some pollen from you if your collecting?

Cheers.

So it's more of a classic pach rather than a PC clone, nice to know.

As for broad ribs, down the bottom of the plant there's hardly any ribs to speak of, it's all plump to the point of splitting. Last decent rain event saw it rip apart nearly a foot long beween some ribs!

@Master B: next flower I get I'll harvest the stamen's and try to dry it out for you. Wife ought to be able to nick a specimen cup from work that I could pop it into. ;)

Hey snowfella

I will send you a pm. I can send you a bit of kit for pollen havesting if your keen.

I can also send you some fresh echinopsis purpureopilosus pollen for your next flowers if you wanted?the only only pollen i have at the moment mate... you should ask around for some pollen and make beautiful babies with that lovely pach

Cheers

B

I'd really like to grow some seeds from that one, crossed with other nice genes..

Perhaps offer some pollen in the pollinators thread and receive some in return.. :)

Unless of course, like Michael suggests, all bridgesii are a subset of pachanoi.......

I have the same plant from hamiltons, I dont know wether this info helps or confuses the issue even more. BUt i have talked to the lady there about the origin of this plant, she is convinced its not a pach but isnt sure quite what it is. I reckon we just call it hamiltons pach
