The odd Oreocereus
The reason I think it’s not an O. celsianus is the not-zygomorphic nature of the flowers. Every other Oreocereus I’ve raised (about six) has a zygomorphic (like a tea kettle) flower. Of course, given the ease of producing hybrids among the cacti, this may just be some sort of hybrid that Indian Rock, intentionally or not, produced.   (07/48)
