I bought the following cacti for my succs and cacti collection. But there wasn't any plant label on them and I'm not experienced in cacti. Would you help me identify these please?

Your echeveria is Perle von Nunburg. As for the others, I'm no expert, but just off the top of my head, I would suggest:
1. Torch cactus
2. ?
3. Joseph's Coat (Opuntia monacantha 'Variegata')
4. ?
5. ?
6. Cereus - Cereus (Cereus repandus 'Monstrosus')
7 Opuntia microdasys
8. Ladyfinger Cactus (Mammillaria elongata)
9. Monstrose form of Eve's Needle Cactus (Austrocylindropuntia subulata) or
Austrocylindropuntia (Austrocylindropuntia cylindrica 'Cristata')

Hopefully the experts will be along soon.

1. possibly a Cleistocactus
2. possibly an Echinopsis type cactus.
3. agree with Deebie
4. Could be Saguaro seedlings, but hard to say.
5. Golden Barrel cactus - echinocactus grusonii
6. agree with Deebie
7. agree with Deebie
8. agree with Deebie
9. I actually think 9 is a monstrose version of 8. Aka brown brain cactus...
10. agree with Baja

Thank you both @Baja and @macvansoest! Much appreciated. I got some more today. It frustrates me that they come unlabeled in the nursery. I am trying to learn how to distinguish them, but as a new into collecting them it does seem a tricky task to me still.

Here are some more Cacti that I purchased. If someone has got the time and is willing to help ID them, that would be awesome. I love those columnar ones I got, especially the one that is somewhat bluish!

Some nice variety there. You've got a good source for healthy plants.

The Echeveria with the red leaf margins looks like maybe E. pulidonis or a hybrid. Should have yellow flowers (rather unusual color for an Echeveria).



The second Echeveria looks like E. agavoides or a hybrid. The flowers should be rather small and unimpressive. Get those two Echeverias into pots the width of the rosette or a little more when spring comes around. A setup like the one in the picture, width-wise, would be my recommendation. Be sure to use soil with good drainage (like 50% pumice, perlite, or equivalent).

#4 is not Hylocereus but I couldn't tell you what it is.
#5 could be some kind of Pilosocereus, but I get lost in the details there.
#10 looks like a Mammillaria

Wow, you are really getting a large collection there! All of the plants look great but I'm no help with ID's. I lose mine, or they come with the wrong ID half the time.

Mystery plants present a useful exercise if you go the distance of trying to pin down a correct ID. In the sense of getting you to look more closely at their features, and how they change over time. Things like flowers, and how they branch or offset. Spines and tubercles and ribs. In a sense the ID is only truly useful if you know what makes it so, because that's how you're going to be able to recognize similar but not identical plants in the future if you see them again.

But if you ask me about species of Opuntia or cholla, I'll just shrug, most of the time. Shrug! The way I look at it, why bother, really. That's a level of detail I'm willing to give up forever. Smiling

@Baja_Costero, thank you so much for taking the time to ID some for me! Pinning down the correct ID could take some time for me. :lol:
Thank you @plantmanager, I am obsessed, I admit, more than any other of my houseplants right now. I am going to start my balcony remake this spring and I am going to dedicate it all to my cacti and sucs collection. I will show you the process when I start. Smiling
