Ok thanks for your input. A little more info, the grower (who some people may know, but I will keep anon unless he wishes) stated the seed was labelled Trichocereus Pachanoi and it was grown by him in the last couple of years. As far as I'm aware it is not a clone of the original T.Peru crest doing the rounds.
@Ricky, I don't think they are the same plants, as stated this was seed grown from Pachanoi seed.
My concern is that in this early stage it can be difficult to tell the difference between a Cereus Crest and a Tricho Crest, I was promised this is a Tricho.
The best way to tell now I guess is graft a few sections and see how it progresses, it should become much larger, fatter and the areoles should become more woolly.
If is truly is a seed grown T.Pach I'm quite excited about it. I have a few different Peru/Bridge monsters and crests but no Pachanoi.
Interesting to note is that most seed grown Pachanoi from O/S will have quite a different look to the usual PC Pachanoi we are used to here in Australia.
@fallow, I can't see any Bridgesii in there ? any info
