Stenocereus Thurberii Cacti. Organ Pipe Cactus.
The Stenocereus Thurberii Cactus is a large slow growing tree-like variety of cacti. Several narrow columnar stems rise candelabra-like from a single short trunk just above ground level. Green-grey stems which can reach 16ft in height are around 6 inches in diameter with between 12-19 ribs that bear dark brown-black spines which become lighter as they get older. Stems rarely branch but grow annually from the tip of the last growth.
Older plants annually produce funnel shaped flowers up to 3 inches white-cream with a purple tint in colour which are nocturnal and are closed by the next day. Tennis ball sized, spiney fruit containing edible red flesh follow.
Perfect for Cacti enthusiasts. Very difficult to find for sale at this size in the UK.
