Not sure where this question comes to us from, but the signs outside the window may provide a clue.

hey there, i just bought a thin tall cactus that i really wanna take good care of but none of the apps or interent helped me out in identifying it- Any reccomendations would be lovely, thanks a lot!

Have a great day,
Irem

Irem,

That is a Cereus, probably Cereus peruvianus. It is not getting enough sunlight, or if it is new to you then it was not getting enough sunlight – it wants lots of direct sunlight. If you don’t have a sunny window, I recommend a good quality UV plant light. It’s also ready to be potted up into a larger pot, with fast-draining cactus soil.

Good luck!
Peter
