Another cactus cutting obtained from Krazy Karel.
Karel Knize originally offered this for sale as a “rare” red-flowered form of T. peruvianus. He wanted $100US plus shipping. His first claim was that he had only found one single plant in the wild but he later modified this to finding four plants.
It arrived more correctly identified as T. tulhuayensis (sic for T. tulhuayacensis). It was one of a comparatively few cuttings from Knize to actually arrive with any sort of a label.
Before leaving Texas I had an accident when the plant fell on me and was broken in half with my hand (adding $2K in surgeon fees). The mother was given to SS to propagate and they kindly gave me back this cutting. It has flowered red for them but I lack an image of that.
