Pilosocereus palmeri is a beautiful and well known tree-like cactus that hardly needs an introduction, with its blue ribbed stem tufted in thick silky wool from which near the tops emerge short, funnel-shaped, flesh-colored blooms. It flowers on and off throughout the growing season.

Blooming season: This cactus flowers during the warmest part of the year

Cultivation and propagation: Pilosocereus palmeri grows well and is a very vigorous grower (one of the quickest growing cactus). If grown indoor provide 4 to 6 hours, or more, direct morning or afternoon sun. It should be watered regularly in Summer and kept drier in Winter. It can be grown outdoors in frost-free climates, needs anyway to kept above 12 °C and dry in winter. But it can tolerate temperatures down to 5° C (or even 0° C) for very short periods if very dry and ventilated.

Remarks: Do not use fatty products (like horticultural oil, neem oil, mineral oil, and insecticidal soaps) that can fade and ruin the characteristic blue coloration of the epidermis.
