This tall and spikey cactus is a fun addition to your collection. When you order this cactus, you will receive one that looks similar to these pictures and it will come in a 3.5” pot to protect it from root damage.

It is one of the most spectacular columnar tree-like cereuses and can grow one to 10 (or more) m tall. It ramifies at the base or develops a distinct trunk with dozens of erected glaucous (bluish-silver) branches. Its elegant shape makes it look like a miniature blue Saguaro. This is one of the bluest columnar cacti.

Pseudocephalium: As Pilosocereus cacti age, they produce what is called a 'pseudocephalium', but in Pilosocereus pachycladus, the fertile portion is often slightly differentiated from normal vegetative parts. The floriferous areole is usually located on one or more ribs near the apical part of the branches and produces thick, soft tufts of orange/white hair. This area of the cactus is where the flowers bloom.

Blooming season (Europe): The flowers open at night in summer and continue the day after, in its habitat, it flowers in October and fruits in January. Flowers are seen only in the large, mature specimen at least 1 m tall.

Great Packaging from Planet Desert

Thought it would be a little bigger, it did have a little spot on it, that kinda dying. I was getting worried, but it's starting to get better.

Cactus looks similar, but I was expecting a blue cactus (reason for purchase) but got a dark green one. No response from customer service.

My review

All of my plants came faster than I would have thought. They were all packed really well. My only complain is this plant had a few blemishes. If I was the one choosing the plants, to wouldn't have been my first choice for this plant, but it's really not that bad though.
