need ID help with several plants, part 1


We'll start with several cacti that I have from decades ago. If I ever knew their names, I no longer remember them. I'll have a different thread for each, to keep things straight.

What is this bluish columnar cactus?

(see several photos of it)

Hi, my best guess is that your cactus is of the genus Pilocereus
(maybe P. glaucochrous / or possibly P. lanuginosus ).
There is a nice (5-page long) guide to the species HERE at CactiGuide which might be helpful in determining the species more precisely.
