Hello!

Post by Sophie » Sun Sep 09, 2018 6:40 pm

I'm Sophie and I'm new here. I only have one little cactus so far but I don't know what type it is so I googled it. I couldn't figure out which it was and I ended up finding this forum instead!

I've named him Cooper haha and I'd be grateful if someone could let me know what type he is if you know :)

Hello & welcome aboard Sophie. Your way of naming plants reminds on my kids', I had plants named Eugene, Froggy, Niagara etc, etc :) Anyway, your plant looks like oreocereus to me, most likely oreocereus celsianus.

thank you AnTTun - that confirms the name for the similar one, about which I was unsure

Thanks Chris :) It didn't take me long to get a new one haha! Bought this cutie yesterday but it looks like she's a little bit damaged and I don't know if there is anything I can do to help :/ Also I wish they told you what type each one was instead of just saying 'assorted cacti/succulents'
