New addition to my Euphorbia Cactus collection

Came in the mail today. This is a Euphorbia called " ghost " because of the white coloring. I placed a coffee mug on the shelf at the bottom of the plant to show the size. It will branch out like the two others on each side. I love the way this one contrasts to the others. I have five of these and within four to five years they will reach the top of the inside of the bay window. Not to mention that they can get 2 to 3 feet wide. All the more reason why I would like to winterize my front porch and turn it into a greenhouse.

This lovely big bay window is really great for your cactus...is it south facing? What's the exposure of your porch?

The bay is South facing. The porch gets South on one end and West the entire length of the front.

First time for me for such a light colour cactus! (It is nice for contrast with the others.) Do the Euphorbia cacti flower for you ?
I know what you mean about the porch - every time I move the plants I wish the same! And each year there is always more to fit inside again!! I only have two small south windows.....
