I use to have one like that years ago, but can't remember the name right now & I know what it is. I wouldn't mind having a baby or start of it though laugh I have more cactus then anyone I know, I guess I like them, since they can thrive on neglect.

I swear that tallest one looks a lot like an African milk tree I had years ago (left it out in the cold to freeze to death one night eek ) except it doesn't have all the little leaves on it like mine did. It was a really neat cactus given to me as a start by a friend who moved away. I've never seen one to buy in the 24 years since I killed mine.

I believe it is a Cereus tetragonus, and a very nice one, too!

Ok I agree.does seem like castles.sap is clear.

so whats the one in the crockpot?its sap is clear too.I even smiled when I poked them.....and my donkey ear optunia cacti is going to bloom this year...I need to find the part the dog took off with still.

I use to have a euphorbia triangulas type thing,,,it had them small leaf things your thinking of..and the white sap.I killed it.I'm alot better at zone denial now than then.
