Hi. Is anyone familiar with either of these two plants? The cactus is beginning to spiral (the reason for buying it). The picture of the succulent has to be blown up to see the thorns on the succulent (Pachypodium Griquense?).

An Echinopsis possibly E. calochlora and a Pachypodium - Madagascan Palm.

Thank you, Thijs!
Neither had names labeled when I bought them. I love when the pot only says "cactus" and "succulent" - like we can't figure that out ourselves!
Having the names helps me so much. Referring to a plant as the little cactus by the rock seems too vague. Sadly I often have to use such descriptions with family members since they don't know one kind of plant from another... but they are improving!
