Sausage Plant is a very blue type of short spined Trichocereus peruvianus or some kind of Trichocereus pachanoi. The name comes from the “sausage-like” growth. It has the tendency to terminate its growth and pup again on top of the old shoot. That look can sometimes make them impression of a sausage.
It originally comes from South Australia, but there also are other sites where it can be found. That also includes the Fields collection.
Unfortunately, I do not have a good pic of this pupping behaviour, but it’s been reported from various growers that own this plant. It definitely is one of the most interesting Tricho clones out there and exceedingly rare in cultivation.
