Hello,

Would be good if someone could identify these for me. Thanks

A guess: 'ackermanii' and 'Deutsche kaiserin'.

Top one looks like Nopalxochia (now disocactus) ackermannii, and the second like Nopal. phyllanthoides.
Nice flowers there Matthew.

Hmmm you might be correct with the ackermannii species. My first idea was the cultivar with that name but the species is probably a better guess when I watch that stem piece. A photo of the whole plant would help a lot here. And as Deutsche kaiserin is a selected clone from N. phyllanthoides we do agree on this one.

The stem details are not too clear, but I tend to agree with CP on the botanical ackermanii. The cultivar ackermanii has mainly triangular stems with thin spines, this doesn't seem to be the case with your plant.
