Pilosocereus Leucocephalus, Over 7 Inches Tall - Free US Shipping


Pilosocereus leucocephalus, also known as the Wooly Torch Cactus and Blue Old Man Cactus, is a visually striking plant that is native to portions of Mexico and Central America. The bluish-green ribbed stems are decorated with white hair that becomes thicker as the plants age.

The listing photos show a portion of the plants being made available growing in heir 4 inch diameter containers. All stand 7 to 9-1/2 inches above the soil and will be shipped bare root (with no pots or soil).

The Wooly Torch is a quick growing cactus that can reach a height of 20 feet. They can tolerate temperatures down to 36 degrees for short periods of time, however they should not be exposed to anything below 50 degrees on a regular basis. They require direct sunlight for a minimum of 5 hours per day and must be planted in soil that drains very well. During the warmer portions of the year, allow the soil to dry completely, and remain that way for several days before watering again. Water only once every three to four weeks between late fall and early spring.

PLEASE NOTE: We do not use heat packs and we are not responsible for damage related to the plants being exposed to cold temperatures.
