Re: Not for the squeamish

I'm sure the plant will live, just a shame because it was so pretty before. As for magpies, there's no telling what they'll eat.

Re: ID plse

I would say Trichocereus but I have a poor record of identifying those and so many columnars look the same!

Re: Trichocereus ? Solved

One feature that should be present on any T. pachanoi is the horizontal groove above each areole. I see it on some, but not all, of the plants in your other message. Another thing to consider is that some authors combined T. peruvianus and T. bridgesii with T. pachanoi as a single species. This page...
