Old Man Cactus Recognizable for its long, beard-like grayish-white hairs, this cactus is a striking addition to any garden or indoor collection.

Thrives in well-draining soil and full sun with afternoon shade. Water minimally in summer and sparingly in winter to mimic its native desert environment.

Essential Care Tips

Stands out with its shaggy hair, blue-green stems, and occasional bright blooms. A low-maintenance plant, it can reach up to 40 feet in its natural habitat.

Captivating Appearance

Propagate through seeds, offsets, or stem cuttings. Be patient; it's a slow grower but can live for over 100 years with proper care.

Propagation and Growth

Watch out for mealybugs and scale insects hidden in its hairy coat. Avoid overwatering to prevent root rot and ensure the plant's long-term health.
