My husband brought me a tall thin cactus back from AZ about 5 years ago. We have it outside in the summer and bring it in the fall. It is about 3ft tall and looks kike a Mexican post but it has formed buds on now and the buds are about 4" long and are punk and big. The followers haven't opened yet.

It's some kind of cereus. My guess would be Cereus peruvianus or Cereus childsii. What color are the flowers?
