    I need help identifying this cactus. It was given to me as a cutting. I've had it for a few years now and I need to repot it. It is a light green color with pink shading in places. The leaves are long and flat.

    Might be a cereus or relation. Needs more light.

    Thanks for your reply! I have put a grow light bulb in the lamp near that cactus. I've had pretty good luck with my succulents and cacti. Most of them bloom in late summer, early fall.

    To me it looks more like a badly etiolated Opuntia monacantha 'Joseph's Coat'. It certainly needs more light.
