cactus succulent identification, please

I bought this specimen at the local nursery. It was one of a kind, no ID attached. Unfortunately, the nursery people couldn't help. Does anybody know what this is, and its cultivation requirements?

Looks like type of Cereus....

I'm guessing either euphorbia or senecio. If it has milky white sap, it's probably a euphorbia.

It's Known as ... No kidding... A Penis Cactus!
It's a Monstrose form of Echinopsis lageniformis. It's also referred to as Trichocereus bridgesii.

paulzie32, well you said it and I didn't so thanks. I will google to find cultivation tips unless you or somebody else has some to share!

I bought plant with no identification. It stands upright with rather thick light green leaves heavily bordered with white. It seems to obviously be a succulent.
Any ideas out there? Would love to propragate. Thanks
