Echinopsis chamaecereus?

Peanut Cactus (Echinopsis chamaecereus)

This looks like a good example:

It really does look like Echinopsis chamaecereus. Maybe its just really rootbound.

It think its a pure chamacereus - the plantlets look like peanuts.

Echinopsis chamaecereus is also known as 'Peanut Cactus.' *Blush*

Also, it looks that Chamaecereus silvestrii is a synonym of Echinopsis chamaecereus.

I don't have one, but I'd sure love to gets my hands on one. *Blush* All I can find is the chamaelobivia hybrid. I'm so tired of hot pink flowers. Hilarious!

I think you should get regular echinopsis lobivias instead.

I'll have to keep an eye out for those then. If they're not in bloom, I'm unsure what's pretty in most cases. But, we seem to get the same cacti every year, so it seems hard to find that needle in a haystack. Sad

Thank you everyone for your feedback. Smiling Yes, the flowers are great. I inherited this plant from someone who had to leave town. The only info I had was that it was growing in full sun. I am going to have to move it to a new pot but wanted to figure out the ID first.

What a great pot to inherit, Baja! It's beautiful grown that way.
I think my plant is the same.

Yours is a without a shadow of a doubt a hybrid. Bigger, and longer spines. Pretty sure baja has the original peanut variant.

I found the ID tag for that plant. It is Chamealobivia hybrid 'Fire Chief'. I've had it for over 10 years, so I'm assuming the name has changed a few times.

Any ideas on what kind this is and the best care for it? I've had it for about a year and it always wants to lean. I know that I'm doing something wrong or it would have grown more? Thank You!

Mammlaria gracilis, with major etiolation, place in a sunnier spot gradually.
