What type of cacti are these?
I assume they are both the same type - maybe difference species though?
Again, like my other posts, I have had these for over 10 years and have never gotten them ID'd.

I think its a Silver Torch - Cleistocactus strausii. Have you ever seen it bloom? You would know for sure if it did as the flowers are very distinguishable. I'm have trouble IDing your cactus because I think they may not be getting enough sun.

I agree some kind of Cleistocactus in need of more sun.

Thank you!!
Unfortunately they are in the sunniest window in the house!
Maybe I could bring them outdoors in the summer

I tip my hat to you.
