Hello. Just a quick and simple question, but is anyone able to identify my two cactus for me please. Got them as a Christmas present so unsure of what kind they are. Thank you.

    I believe the larger one is a "barrel cactus", but not sure which species/variety.

    The smaller one appears to be a 'grafted' cactus, with a "root stock" that appears to be of the genus Hylocereus, like the Costa Rica Nightblooming Cactus.
