    Looks like Echinopsis pachanoi (San Pedro), but with the shitty picture it's hard to be certain.

    Its not a pencil cactus , but it looks a bit like it . Its got the dog stumped also . The rocks look like white quartze . I also dont think this is the cactus that makes peyote , so I would not eat any of it . Just enjoy it as a desert plant , just sun and a little water . desert rat

    peyote with san pedro grafted on is my guess based upon the looks of two different cacti one on top of the other. I don't think this is done much except for those two species.

    I don't see any grafting done... and definitely no peyote! It's just the way the San Pedro grew after being damaged.

    I don't think it's two types of cacti, i'm almost certain it's one kind. i was told that it contains mescaline, but it doesn't really look like any of the the san pedro on google images. but yes reguardless, it's a lovely little cactus to take care of
