Echinopsis brevispinulosus is ???

Postby Minime8484 » Mon Mar 11, 2013 8:45 pm

As mentioned in this post:

I obtained a cutting of a plant called Echinopsis brevispinulosus...called the "Corn Cob Cactus".

That not being a valid name, I'm posting here in hopes it might be enough to suggest an ID - although, as Daiv said, flowers and distribution would help (I was told the flower is white and nocturnal).

Any ideas or info are appreciated!

lol I am getting conflicting info from google!
an update .. Echinopsis bridgesi (from Trichocereus) but when I looked that up, on Cactiguide it game me this name.. ... geniformis
(so more conflicting information) from google the one on the second row 2nd from left looks similar to your plant. I really dont know tho. :)
Here's to you, all you insidious creatures of I mean cacti.
