My Stenocereus eruca isn't

Recommended Posts

While cleaning up my plant database I noticed that my supposedly Stenocereus eruca doesn't look anything like the photos on the Internet

Anyone know what it actually is?

Thanks

When mine are shade grown they resemble yours. Gradually acclimate yours to full sun, and the central spines will become more dagger like. Eventually the spines will become more ivory colored and the stem will produce offsets which are typically prostrate.

It has been in full sun since I got it in August of 2018. I'm thinking that it is probably a  Pilosocereus gounellei
