1.

I am asking about the 2 identical ones, in reddish round pots tin the middle of the pan. I was thinking about ferocactus, but might they by echinocereus?
??????



2.
Recently bought. I am not 100% it's not 5 separate plants. I took a photo to post here to take opinions if it's likely to be like 5 separate plants... later, watching the photo I say there are seedlings.



Will check this out tommorow again...

Ferocactus what??

3
???

4.
Polaskia??

5. Two more unknowns. the left one is a much slower grower



[I have to take my photos earlier in the day in such cloudy days. This photo is awfully lit...]

I am terrible at this, but I think the one on the left in photo 5 is an espostoa.
I think your plant in photo two may be one clump actually, I have a lot of echinopsis that behave that way

Thanks! Smile yeah you never know with those columnars unless you are exeprienced with lots of them

You think 2 is an echinopsis? I was almost sure it is a fero, and I am too leaning towards it's a clump not 3 plants....

No, I think it is a fero, I just have some similar shaped echinos and they grow in the same sort of way.
That one looks like an espostoa of mine, it could be a cleistocactus, or I could be completely wrong

Thanks a lot hellonasty!

I have thought about the '4#polaskia?' to be a non-geometrizans Myrtillocactus, and also that 5 right must be some Stenocereus. Thanks for confirming that, I also think 5left might be some pachycereus
