Could someone assist me with identifying this specific cactus?

Thanks!

Hi all! Does anyone know what kind of cactus this is, and why it is leaning so much? It's in a south-facing window (the only one I have in my apartment) and gets plenty of sun. I think it needs to be transpotted to a larger pot, does anyone have a recommendation for the best type of pot for this cactus? Thank you!

Echinopsis, perhaps an etiolated form of spachianus.

Sooooo that's what it is! I have one just like it. Always wondered what it was. Just did a wed search and they get huge. Mine is about the same height as the one in the picture. In the last couple years it hasn't grown much taller but it really got fatter. Really top heavy plant. It tipped over once and fell on my bare foot. That hurt like hell!!

Mine (former, now at our national botanical garden, where most of my plants are bound to go sooner or later) should reach this height in a year or so.

I would say a very etiolated peanut cactus. Does not look like E. spachianus to me. Etiolated for sure...

This my 'Echinopsis' mephysto, which is listed as a peanut cactus. Now project that onto the plant above...

Your plant is old though. Not fast growing(thus the etiolation).
Not long either

Slow growing plants that etiolated can grow surprisingly long surprisingly fast...

Etiolated plants stagnate much quicker. It takes a while before they are made to grow again...
