Question

20171101_124545.thumb.jpg.1b9bd5ccbda936b9791c0b26137a85a9.jpg

 

This is a cactus I bought about 3 months ago from a local nursery. The seller didn't know what kind of cacti it was and I haven't been able to find the answer on the web so far so I decided it was time to post a pic on here.

 

I know the cacti to the left of it(in the same pot actually) is a Cereus peruvianus, but the other one I have no clue. To me it looks like some kind of Trich crossed with a C. peruvianus. 

 

It is very red near the top(including the spines), but seems to settle into a dark green the older the growth is. And the spines are very long. It's about 24 inches tall or so, but the part you can see in the pic is only about a foot. 

 

Any help is appreciated...thanks!

That's what I thought for a while but when I compare pics of polaskia chichipe online to my plant it either has different spination, rib structure, coloring, or a mix of all three.
