Hi,

I don't know which but suggest it's a Euphorbia of some kind (not leuconeura, but maybe something like it).

If you haven't yet read up on Euphorbias & their sap which can sometimes be a skin irritant, I'd do so. Pls. wash carefully after handling, especially 'til you learn what it is. (Likely this bleeds white sap)

Thank you for the help pirate girl, I looked online for awhile but I think its going to be impossible to i.d this plant considering theres 300 generas with 7,500 species and 870 are regarded as succulents. I guess I will watch it learn what it likes and see what happens.

Looks like a Pachypodium to me but it's not a genus that I grow. Maybe someone else will chime in with a more specific answer.

I though pachypodium too when I first saw it. But I don't grow them either hanzrobo.

I could have sworn I posted to this somewhere. This is Euphorbia for sure. It may be E. viguieri or one of the cultivars of it. The spines are different than most viguieri I've seen in that they are singular and pronounced. There are many other Euphorbia that have this "look" of spines and a spiral stem. The picture is of my Euphorbia viguieri taken yesterday. It is self pollinating and easy to grow from seed as I currently have about 15 or more that recently germinated and several more on the way, not to mention 3 that should be flowerings soon... any takers??????

No confusion but here is another possibility: Euphorbia perrieri elongata

RE: Id please

Thanks bikerdoc, I didnt think I was ever going to be able to I.d this plant, I did learn that its on the endangered list and I thought it was pretty cool to see my pics that I took of the plant on google with only a couple other ones, but im going to have to do alot of research on the plant because the web sites didnt have any temp,soil,light,watering info for it.
