The second one is called a Fishhook Cactus. I am not sure what the last one is.

Super easy to keep. Just don't spray hairspray on them (my mom had some cactus years ago when I was a kid and my little brother tried to "help" by watering them with hairspray...didn't work out.)

That reminds me of the time my mom sprayed Round-Up on a plant to kill aphids. The next day the plants was dead while she was looking perplexed.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

I LOVE cacti! I have two, one of them looks like your first one. I have no idea what kind they are but I've have that one for about 5 or 6 years and it's still growing! :)
