Ok so I'm wondering if this green cactus is opuntia? I know the purple-ish one is, but the green one was just gifted to me from a friend who doesn't know what it is. I believe it is opuntia but I'm not an expert and i don't know for sure. Thanks in advance for any replies

That is an oppuntia. It's hard to tell which species though. Probably Oppuntia Ficus-indica.

Looking for an ID of the taller cactus with white spines. I believe it is some type of mammillaria.

Thanks in advance.

Everytime I goto Walmart I come back with a new plant. Any chance at a possible i.d.? It looks pretty enough

Hi BigSteve,

That is one of the Mammillaria. That particular variety is commonly known as " Popcorn Cactus" , and also as " Thimble Cactus".

I have some myself and they pup profusely, and will rather quickly (in years) fill a pot wall to wall.

That is one of a huge succulent family, Faucaria by my best guess. They all have sharp looking jaw type growth, and a huge amount of them are commonly known as " Alligator Jaws", Shark or Tiger jaws.

Thanks for the ID, I figured it was popcorn but it is more tall than spherical so I figured I would ask. Those pups are the first it's produced so I won't steal them yet. My goal is to get them happy in their new pots first.

 

Thanks again

I found this at a farmers market in Northern California and think that it’s a San Pedro, any thoughts?

Those areoles are pointing up pretty good. Looks a little PC, but it would take a flower for a positive ID. Even if it is pachanot, it would still make great grafting stock or if you really love the look then you are set.
