My Cactus

Hi all,

I recently bought this cactus but haven't had much luck identifying it. Any help or ideas would be very much appreciated.

Thanks :)

I think it is Euphorbia obesa


  • It's most likely a Euphorbia, but definitely not E. obesa.

I think it might be Orbea variegata, previously called Stapelia variegata



I don't think it is a cactus... if you give it a tiny knick is the juice clear or milky? clear would lean me to stapelia, milky to euphorbia...

it looks like a stapelia to me, generally, but the flower or the latex would be a more definitive test.
