    All are Opuntia cacti. The second one looks very etiolated. I can't give you species names though, sorry.

    I dunno, Talmin never seen the likes of these before. The secont one looks familiar but i cant recall its name... it looks related to the thornless prikely pear to me.

    There are large numbers of cacti species with very restricted ranges. Some are decimated by plant pochers every year, others are almost completely unknown in cultivation. It they could be anything. Add to this knowlege the fact that there are unusual cultivaters out there, and some of those cultivaters are very, very rare. I dont know if youll ever find out what all of them are.
    that makes no logic

    1) hard to tell, it has been grown in very poor light during dormancy. Guess: Cephalocereus senilis
    2) Opuntia microdasys var. alba / or 'Bunny Ears'
    3)Cylindropuntia subulata

    The first cactus will never look nice after that. That is why they need dormancy, otherwise you get spindly weak growth.
