With th exception of the two Peruvianus' (left and right ends), they're all Pachanoi. The thicker Peruvianus is a newly rooted cutting, and the one with the crazy pups (several ribs have 2 - 3 right on top of each other, and one rib has 4!) was grown from seed, and has finally accumulated enough mas...
