I saw this in a greenhouse the other day and was impressed.
Sorry no tag ,I think it was just a display cactus.

Really impressive. It must have been there for a long time, I can't imagine being able to move it without losing arms. It's really nice.

I've never seen one twist about like that - I'm assuming that it is a golden torch, but I very well might be wrong ....?

According to my son it looks like someone stuffed monkies in a pot and put flowers in their tail.

Hello, I believe this to be nicknamed the Dread Cactus, after dread locks. I would have to look up the scientific name however. but that is beautiful. Did you buy it?

No , I don't think it was even for sale , maybe just a specimen plant?

If some one gives me an identification I will put it in the database Smiling

Ang's son might have been the closest, actually - if I'm correct, it is often called "Monkey's Tail" or Golden Rat Tail -Cleistocactus winteri. I really think this is it.
