Which Cactus

Post by gdlwyverex »

This was sold to me as a pachycereus pringlei, but at such a low price as to make me doubt it's ID

It stands about 70 cm high ( 2.5 feet) and has 16 ribs.
The new thorns at the top are reddish in color wile the older thorns on the side are greyish

Is it a P. pringlei?

Thanks

Nice plant.
Can I ask, what was the suspiciously low price for this in Mexico?

It cost me $22.50 as opposed to the 100 dollars per foot that I have seen all over the Internet.

Saguaro are sold by the foot. P. Pringle are selling cheaply now, as I said above.
