did you sort it out tripsis? I reckon I can sort you out with a bit of "Jess"/"Gherkin", i dunno tacq/werd differentiation. Spines go fluffy with age at top. Can send a pic of the bit I have if you're keen, about 20cm, bit crooked coz it's growing out from under anothe branch... might have an abg werd floating around I'd have to chPicture1.thumb.jpg.5bdf4814e54f4c9b276b9271b0b76f65.jpgeck.

Sorry Micromegas, only just seen your message. What are those photos of? The first one looks similar to what I'm after, but perhaps not with the stout spines (which I feel would be closer to chiloensis). The second one - is that the same plant? Looks almost like a skinny pasacana.

Same plant, goes fuzzy on top. It's a Trichocereus taquimbalensis/ Echinopsis tacaquirensis subs. taquimbalensis. v.diff to chiloensis.

That makes sense. Beautiful plant, but really after the stout-spined tacaquirensis. What's the ABG werd look like? Never seen any photos of it.

The ABG "werdemannianus" (not my pic)

Thanks, Glaukus. Looks more like the taquimbalensis Micromegas posted earlier. This stout-spined tacaquirensis is an elusive plant! I'm quite surprised it's not a more popular / sort after species.

I've got a tacaquirensis and it's super slow growing and prone to rot. Nursing it through it's early years and hopefully it'll be good once established.

Fair point about the slow growth, probably at least part of the reason why it's not more common.
