Just bought this - tag says 'trichocereus grandiflorus hybrids' but its probably wrong (from Lowes).




Thanks in advance Smiling

That is an unofficial name they give to a lot of Trichocereus hybrids. However, it probably is some kind of Trichocereus (officially that should still be Echinopsis I think), and likely some kind of hybrid. It should get big show flowers.
