Hey Blowng,


I cant moderate this foum or I would edit your post and fix the image. Instead I will just post it at the end of my post.

your plant is a Euphorbia grandicornis.

Try looking in succulent books or succelent sections. Technically it's a succulent and not classed as a cactus. As far as I know cacti only occur in the Americas and these guys are from Africa.

yep, its as said. don't have one, don't specialise in other succs but i've seen this species before and this is one of the cooler-looking Euphs IMO. take trig's advice and/or go one further and locate a book specifically on Euphorbias.

precisely, with the exception of a few Rhipsalis existing throughout central Africa, Madagascar and even Sri Lanka. Wink how they managed to get there remains a mystery.

I never knew that lewis. You got a reference for that? Would like to have a read if it's online anywhere? Cheers.
