Both are Cereus tetragonus...but I compare both and see differents.

The first I think it can be Cereus tetragonus "Faire Castle"...could be??

Is the second the typical species of Cereus tetragonus the cv. "Faire Castle" ?

Hola Bromelia,

I think you might mean 'Fairy Castle'....I believe the one on the left is known by that cultivar name. There's also a crested version, too, IIRC, while your one on the left is monstrose.

Aren't Fairy Castles a form of Euphorbia?

aka Acanthocereus tetragonus 'Fairy Castle'. I had several of these... really cool little cacti.

Geoff is correct, Bromelia, for the specialized name of the genus. Karen, that could be, but it'd be a first for me (not a Euexpert).
