Shipping calculated at checkout.
Also known as Old Man Cactus and the Old Man of Mexico. It is native to Eastern Mexico and endangered in it's natural habitat. It is a very slow grower but can reach a height over 40 foot tall. It takes 20 years from seed to flower and seed is becoming extremely rare to find. These columnar cactus have a shaggy coat of long, white hairs suggestive of unkempt hair on an old man. There are specimens in the wild known to be over 200 years old. These cactus need a minimum of 6 hours of direct sun and prefer more. The hairy coat protect them from intense afternoon sunshine. They also need a very well draining soil. Much more so than most cactus and other succulents.
These plants are seed grown from a domestic stock.
This is for one succulent plant growing in a 4" container shipped bare root. It may not be the exact succulent but it will be very similar to the pictures.
Available for local pickup in New River Arizona (North of Phoenix) or shipping within the United States. Shipping is done Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday so plants don't get stuck at the Post Office over the weekend.
