Help me identify this plant. Please tell me after my very long search, I finally bought a (or 2) Peruvian Apple cactus that will eventually bloom at night???? 🤩 😳 🙏 🌵 #cactus-id-help #cactusid #help-id

The left one certainly fits the profile! I believe it is an 🍎! I think the right one is a different Cereus. I've seen it before; I'll get back to you on that one.

That does look like a Peruvian on the left. The one on the right looks like my Peruvian Monstrose

FWIW, I have A LOT of Peruvian Apple cacti and am trying to prop some from seed, so HMU in the spring... I can give you some of my babies if they actually grow😊

@savannahssucculentgarden I think the one on the right is #cereus-peruvianus-monstrose it looks like mine. Weird iteration, but I love it. @sunlovin agree?

@savannahssucculentgarden @dirtgirlworld @fearlessthereforepowerful Thank you very much! 😊 I’ll take better photos of the little guy, but I think you ladies are right - he looks like the Peruvian monstrose cactus! I’m so happy! 🤩 🌵 🙏

@sunlovin Thank you! I’m excited to watch them grow! I never thought I’d go through phases with my plants - but I’m definitely 💯 in a cactus phase right now!
