Below is the result of a seed packet I received for free a few seasons ago labelled T.Peru "Icaro's"
I am quite happy with the result, quite a nice looking Tricho. Do you like it ?





























This is the first one again.

That's a beauty, the blue colour to the skin is very pretty. I reckon it would look fantastic as a feature or accent plant in a mixed rockery garden bed. I must admit that I've always liked the blue-skinned columnar species, however both Pilosocereus and Myrtillocactus seem a little too cold- and damp-intolerent for where I live. This could be a good alternative...

That's really beautiful! I don't have any so big...
I'd like to know if the one below is trichocereus too. Thanks.

Beautiful Tricho that one, have some of those which I have grown from seed myself, nowhere near as far along as that one. Nice to know it gets that beautiful glaucous blue with a bit of maturity. How old?

Katu,

Those pictures were taken in 2011. The plants are huge now, I will take an updated photo and post it up for you. They must be at least 5 years old by now.
