Hi I picked up this pretty little guy from Home Depot. It came without an ID tag. Any idea what this guy is?

I bought one like that a couple of years ago. It was labeled as Cereus forbesii monstrose "Ming Thing". If my memory serves accurately, I think @DaisyI is growing it as well and longer than I have, so I'm tagging her in my response. It's very slow growing for me, so it's not one that will grow into it's container very quickly if it's a lot larger than the container than when it was purchased. Other than that, it hasn't been a difficult plant. It just sits there looking like it looks Big Grin .

I have had mine since 2014 and its still in a 5 inch pot. Someone seems to have changed its name to Acanthocereus tetragonus 'Ming Thing'
