Now that there are not one, but two pics of columnar Euphorbias in this thread, does that mean that it's now just "Columnars" and not "Columnar Cacti?"

No I just found out by your post. So sorry for the confusion on that! #-o We have been including other succulents in these last few contests. I suppose Euphorbias are fine for the columnar contest.

What do you say Darryl?

I could do cute columnars, but I can't do any really huge ones.

If Euphorbias are not to be considered for the contest, it's ok by me. I'll find another picture to enter. :-)

I did not specify cacti, just columnars. Succulents/Euphorbias are columnars too, so thats fine by me! :)
