To start with Pachanoi has short spines. so it aint pach.

good links for more info
http://www.columnar-cacti.org/trichocereus/page4.html
http://www.trichocereus.com/peruvian_torch4.htm

Both of these links will give you a much greater understanding of the whole family. It is a topic of great length and one that you will gain knowledge in time by seeing and being around lots of diff tricho's, Also help to see them when they are a little older. other wise ID can be difficult with smaller plants.

Hope this shed's some light for you and helps you out. I wish I knew where on the forum was a previous thred with lots of info on this subject but im sure if you have a look through some older ones you will find more.

Thanks for the info. Indeed it doesn't look like a pachanoi, except people keep telling me that it is, including the guy who sold them. Very confusing. Is it possible for a pach to have such spikes? It looks a lot more like a t. peruvianus to me.
