Hi Everyone :smile:

Saw this on the wrong shelf at the garden centre so just had to buy it :grin:

I think it might be an Oreocereus celsianus?

Anyone else got any ideas?
There was a similar one on Facebook recently which had no roots. So check for the usual bugs.
Thanks for the advice habanerocat :smile:

Would fit the "plant identification thread" quite well.
Yes, first thing I looked for was an identification section. Looked again, still can't see where it's hidden.
It doesn't exist (yet?!).

Thanks everyone. I had a look down your list and I think it's a Pilosocereus menesianus.

Cheers to all :smile:
