Another one from last night, but some fresh and better photos. This one is again quite big ancient - has suffered with a bit of scarring at the base - and has never flowered in my possession. Spines are a bronzy brown / yellow colour. Has quite distinct ribs. Checked my books and can't narrow this down. Any thoughts? 🤔 #cactus #plantid #plantid-cactus

I'm sure my nan had a cactus like this but never knows the name of them, she always used to say "she would make a good gardener "cry if they ever saw the way she did things 😂 sorry cant help with the name, and I don't think hers ever flowered either if it did it was once Ina blue moon

Possibly a trichocereus species ?

I have an ancient one too, brown at base. Spikes are lethal

While I'm posting pics, he's another unknown cactus that I got years ago. Any thoughts? (Pic from last April 2016) #cactus #plantid #plantid-cactus

In our cactus and succulent book there's so many that look so similar so I don't think we'll guess on this one!

Yes, thanks anyway @gjones 🙏🏼 - this one is definitely harder to find in my book too!
