I'll happily take sloppy seconds. I don't even know what it is apart from beautiful.

I found one of these about 30cm tall for $60 at a nursery a few weeks ago. I left it there, wasn't feeling rich enough.

Awesome shapes though, a great looker for sure. :)

Cleistocactus serpens has Loxanthocereus listed as synonym.

Yep, sure is. I was up in that town again for another event so I stopped back in at the nursery. It really is a looker and I was close to getting it last time and I just couldn't help myself.
