Cereus repandus, or also called cereus peruvianus

Doesn't look like the ones I got.

RE: What Cereus is it?

Definitely Cereus peruvianus. There are many variations.

I have this growing everywhere, literally, the wind breaks them or they grow too big and I whack at them with the machete. It is one of my favorite cactus simply because of the blooms, the big one in the front will have hundreds of blooms at once.

The growth can vary so much on the same plant you think there is an alien growing in there. It is not unusual for the arms to grow in a twisty pattern but the arm next to it is straight as a board. I recently gave away a few dozen of these cuttings and the new owners wanted to know how to make the twisty growth.

Nice collection you have there!
Tally HO!
