Cacti Identification and Care Tips

harooniqbalAugust 22, 2012

I need to identify these two cacti bought 3 weeks back in the image. They are placed in a south window getting indirect moderate light. Would like to know about the taller one if the new branches are normal or reaching for more light?

The tall one looks like Opuntia monocantha. It likes morning sun and bright light. It can take some strong sun but not all day. I have no experience with growing this inside.
