These have been rescued from a pot choked in weeds. I know number two is a Euphorbia but I am not sure what sort, it either has a really long root or has been planted too deeply. The last one has me baffled

HI number two is a euphorbia which is not a cactus, not sure of type, but beware of the white sap it exudes if damaged can be very nasty indeed

Agree 1st is 100% Haku-jo but lost it's furry edges It could revive into a nice looking cactus in time though.

Well I think they all need a little extra coddling, they were a bit sad looking. I'll post a pic if I can get any flowers from the lobivia, they might be feeling happier soon

G'day,
#1 is Echinopsis cv "Haku Jo"


#2 is Euphorbia cv "Green Elf"


#3 is Echinopsis (Lobivia) ancistrophora ssp. arachnacantha.
Flower colour varies, ...white through to red.



Nice plants!

I thought the first one looked more like a pachycereus based on the fluff on the edge of the ribs.

Aha, thanks for that CactusPoleCat! My girlfriend has a couple of very small specimens of Lobivia ancistrophora ssp. arachnacantha in community pots. I had thought they were Parodia werneri (Notocactus uebelmannianus), judging by their appearance compared to a more mature plant of the latter species, but when looking at your photo, there's no doubt it's the former. Explains why one of them has offsets already.
