Does anyone know what this is?
This is the first time i have seen the flowers and have had the plant for about 4 years.
The flowers feel succulent. The column has grown spines in the last year too.

Thanks!

Euphorbia mammillaris 'variegata', we called it 'corn cob' which I think is an accepted common name.

That's a really nice plant, the photo of the flowers looks great.

Okay, looks like we lost the last few posts.
Someone asked what the cactus was behind the bridgesii.
Heres a few pics. I think it is an Opuntia, an ID would be great.
I got the cutting from a TAFE garden that was being cleared years ago. Very painful spines.

Opuntia tunicata? Not totally sure, am not that familiar with the genjus, but I think I have one of those also.
