Sorry cant id them, but is the soil all Potting Mix? If so, i would suggest mixing it 50/50 with larger sand particles.

Understood.

My excuse for this poor state of affairs is that they have been rapidly repotted due to various house moves - and not enough care. Easy to put a bit more effort in, in hindsight.

I promise to plant them soon in something a bit better...

Hows that for a great ID!

Dunno Kada looks quite like a Stenocereus sp. to me, that said, I know next to nothing about that genus. Just has that Steno look I reckon. You probably know the genus a whole lote better than I do though. You use them for grafting don't you?

Second one looks very familiar but a concrete ID eludes me for now. Reminds me of a Cereus sp. but the ribs look too full, unlike a Cereus sp.

Hmm we aren't much help are we Rolling Eyes

P.S: RTD, you NEED more cacti mate, more cacti I say. Best damn hobby/lifestyle around Wink

sorry i cannot provide an identification. they do look familiar but i can't put a name on them. juvenile columnars (*if thats what they are) in general can differ considerably from the mature plant of the same species, so just wait and see what they develop into. Wink
and yes, i do notice the severe cactus deficieny. fortunately collecting cacti is extremely addictive and you will soon build up a nice collection.
