anyone confident on ID of this cactus .
. white stuff is something sticky that landed on the plant.
Plant has some damage from being neglected and outside but hopeful for new growth and the flower is alright.

Yes. It's a Trichocereus huascha Syn Echinopsis huascha or even Trichocereus Grandiflorus. Beautiful flower.

thanks Hellonasty, thats what I was coming up with too when researching . good to get a second opinion . I looked agian this morning and the spines get longer as the plant gets taller. so even the shorter spined pics on the web could still be the same plant. I reckon that mine must be about 8 to 10 years old going by the age of rest of the collection that has ID labels with details of purchase and seller details.

Gracie,


T. Huascha grows rapidly. 10 years seens too old. How tall is it ? Looks about 30-40cm. At that height I would expect it to be no more than 5years.

I can't id the second one without a few more, better quality, pics. Close up of spination, epidermis and flower if possible.

Yeah cal That flower is awesome.

no probs. camera is back in action so I'll get some updated photos , that one was taken to keep a record of sorts while I potted up the trailer load . The plant with the red flower is about 30 cm tall it had been sitting under a porchway with no water for quite some time. a senicio articulartis has only just started to make fresh growth and that was from end Oct 07, was two little sections in a pot with nothing else . i had hoped they were the more rounded ones but no, just the common one. I guess that leaves me a bit more space now for a nice cactus.

I agree with Michael, the second looks like an Echinocereus. closer pics are needed!
