Cereus spegazzinii

I think you are correct. It does seem to have areoles, so definitely a cactus.

Re: propagation of a pickle plant

Or you could cut a few stem segments.
They tend to branch naturally from the base, so a short stump with several shoots from it may look better than a long chopped-off branch.

Re: Serpentine aloe

Fair enough! I couldn't remember what my A. sakarahensis looked like when very small, there is often a change in leaf shape and pattern over the first
few months or more.

Re: Is this Opuntia Robusta?

It could be O. robusta. Pad colour and size depends a bit of the growing conditions. The Palm Tree Co probably import ones that have been grown outdoors in the Canary Isles, or south of Spain etc. These are likely to have a much fuller "blue" colour than anything that's been grown under gl...

Re: Serpentine aloe

Agaveville seems to have the same problem, 2 different species with the same name: https://www.agaveville.org/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=3251 The plants I have as A. sakarahensis match your first plant. I've never grown anything under the name A. prostrata. Your second plant looks as though it's about...

Re: Which Cactus

When I purchased this, it was listed as Trichocereus cephalomacrostibas. It has a strong resemblance to trich. Super plant! When it flowers you will know, maybe soon? Trichocereus.net discusses this species, reckons it's Weberbauerocereus: https://trichocereus.net/trichocereus-cephalomacrostibas-ec...

Is that Aloe sakarahensis? I thought I was almost the only person growing this weirdo.

Re: Serpentine aloe

Are you referring to the long, slender curving leaves?
Quite a few Aloes have slender leaves, just have a look through the assortment that llifle lists: http://www.llifle.com/Encyclopedia/SUCC ... ceae/Aloe/

Re: Which Cactus

OK, so maybe it's synonymous with Weberbauerocereus weberbaueri var. horridispinus.

Re: Which Cactus

Coincidentally that Bing link shows a Cereus Cephalomacrostibas - a rare plant whose areoles look suspiciously wrong as well (not to mention the flowers). Another freak? Apparently it's a Weberbauerocereus. Some other Weberbauerocereus have similar prominent areoles with lots of felt: http://www.ll...

F.latispinus seems a good call.

I wouldn't be optimistic about the growing point - it doesn't look good. Expect offsets next year!

Re: Am I correct?

The first may be Euphorbia polygona.
The last looks like Cleistocactus strausii, IMHO. Spination can vary on young plants. New growth is getting etiolated, it needs more light.
