There are various forms of this species in Puquio and the number of ribs differs greatly among them. Trichocereus puquiensis is known for its high rib count, but there also are other strains from Puquio that only have five ribs. This strain here is KK1689 Trichocereus puquiensis and was listed as a 5-ribbed variety/form of Trichocereus puquiensis. What we grew from older seed batches of KK1689 was similar to Tr. puquiensis, but also had a definite connection to Trichocereus cuzcoensis.
I included some pics that show the version with the 8-10 ribs as well as the one that only has five or six ribs at max. Definitely an interesting plant and very rare to find. If you are interested in Trichocereus puquiensis, please make sure to check out my description here on my site!
