G'day Folks,
Well I have been at it again and gone and bought a bunch of new cacti...
Picked this lot up off ebay and paid $10 for the lot!

Any ideas as to what they might be?
I have a feeling the ones on the left are some sort of cereus but not sure.

Also I have a bunch of off cuts from the cacti on the left if anyone is interested just let me know (preference will be given to those who have sent me seeds in the past)

The ones on the left may be 'cereus peruvianus'. The woolly one on the right - is it blue or just the lighting?

Definitely some Cereus in there. Could the blue one be a pilosocerues azureus?

Eck, no it's not the lighting it's definietly blue!

Sneaky, think your right about the pilo, was looking around on the Internet and am pretty sure it's a pilo azureus.

As for others def cereus but unsure on what type most likely Peruvians.

I don't think it's p.azureus.  I have several from bunnings supplied by Paradisia.  Below is a pic.
Spines are golden yellow and no wool that I've ever seen.  The only woolly blue I'm aware of is
pilosocereus palmeri.

While browsing Cactiguide I came across Cereus Hankeanus - a
species that seems to be mentioned alongside P.Azureus.  Google
some images and see what you think.
