Pilosocereus Azureus ⎮ Blue Torch Cactus - 6in


Available In-Store Only

The Blue Torch Cactus (Pilosocereus azureus) is a stunning blue cactus native to Brazil. It is a tall pillar cactus reaching 10-30 feet tall depending on the conditions it’s grown in. This cactus has a dramatic blue stem that turns more blue with age and golden spines that turn grey with age. It is a fast growing cactus but will be windowsill size for years before needing to be moved to a larger spot and is a great indoor cactus.

Though there are different types of cacti in the Pilosocereus family, they all generally necessitate the same type of care (which is also very similar to most other cacti, too). If you don't live in an extremely warm, desert-like climate, your best bet is probably to grow your pilosocereus cacti indoors, where you can most easily achieve and maintain the proper growing conditions. Like most cacti, they need lots and lots of direct sunlight to flourish. The brighter the light, the better, and you should aim for between 10 and 12 hours a day.
