Good morning everyone! I hope that you are all staying safe and healthy!

A friend gave me some plants she's no longer able to care for. A sanseveria zeylanica, a schefflera arbicola and this poor little thing. No clue what it is. Fairly homely, but the fuzz on the stalk is pretty cool and interesting to me. I prefer less than perfect specimens - they have more character.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

I'm not certain it may be a species of Euphorbia. @Baja_Costero
