No, it's a cactus, probably a Cereus species. It has glochids, which are the extra short spines around the bigger ones.

Glad you got it covered then.

Oh, thought you might like to know this before being so sure...:unsure:

What cacti have glochids?


Only Opuntioideae Cactus Have Glochids

Luckily you will not find these tiny, irritating spines on all cactus. They only grow on Cholla or Prickly Pear cactus, which are in the Opuntioideae family. Glochids are especially present on the fruit of these plants.
