Euphorbias, not cacti.
They seemed like dancing with their glued flowers

Euphorbia ferox comes to mind, I hate those glued on flowers, always ruins the growing points of plants they are glued to. Take all the silk flower off and allow the glue to come off in time is the safest choice.

tequila and cactus dan,

thank you for the ID - I did not know the flowers were pasted on. I will definitely take them off.

It looks like Euphorbia enopla to me, but it could be Euphorbia ferox as well. See link below.

I maintain that glued-on flowers are not only misleading but are a con! selling plants under false pretenses! and it should be outlawed. Nice plant though just the same.
Heaven forbid the day they start that down under in Oz.

Cactuspolecat,

Thanks for your input. I agree the silk flowers are misleading. That was the reason I bought the little plant - I saw those pretty yellow flowers and thought they grew there. Not fair!!!

It looks like my Euphorbia enopla, which was ID'd by Rosemarie and the others this summer.

suzannie41, as you invite these lovely plants into your care, you will eventually learn to recognise a "rat" when you see it. You still got a nice specimen there though, and the tiny flowers will carry with them a unique beauty that no straw flower can replace.
