    Hello all,

    I picked up this plant today and the only thing the identification tag stated was that it was a "cactus". So I am wondering what it is. It stands approximately 42" (106CM) tall. The base is about 1" (2.5CM) in diameter.

    Any help to identify what it actually is as well as tips for caring for it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Looks like a Euphorbia. (Not such a big help, since this is an incredibly large genus)

    It definately looks very much like E. neriifolia or Indian Spurge Tree. Now to try and find out how to care for it....
