Also know as the Cereus peruvianus var. monstrosus cactus. The curiosity cactus is the mutant form of the Peruvian apple cactus.

It can grow well over 10 feet tall with multiple stems when planted in the ground, but is great for landscapes as well as containers.

Columnar Cacti design and application suggestions:

Columnar cacti are impactful and dramatic. Frame an entryway, put one in an office corner that is just screaming for something interesting or if you are lucky to live in a suitable outdoor environment, install a few columnar cacti in the landscape for dramatic effect. Our columnar cacti are equally happy in a decorative pot or planted in the ground.

Our columnar cacti offer you different colors and growth forms. The totem pole and curiosity cacti have very interesting growth habits. The Mexican fence post, peruvian apple, organ pipe, saguaro and senita offer elegance and presence. The curiosity cacti, silver and golden torch offer splashes of color to integrate with your space.

Why purchase our Columnar Cacti?

Our columnar cacti are grown in their native habitat right here in Southern Arizona. Raised outdoors with just the right amount of water and fertilizer, they come to you in their natural form. These plants do not come to you from a greenhouse. They are already hardy to whatever growing conditions you have to offer. Our columnar cacti present the same appearance as you will find them in their native habitats.

If you want to plant them in a container for a sunroom, patio or window planter, great! If you want to take your columnar cacti and plant them in the ground, also great! No acclimation needed. Our plants are ready to go!

Fitting name

Fitting for this cactus to be called the curiosity cactus... its a very cool cactus. I purchased the smaller one, and the white flowers on it are simply stunning.

easy ordering and process

Not knowing a lot about cacti, it was nice to have more information on where this one grows best. The size reference image also helped me a ton since it's sometimes hard for me to visualize when shopping online. Overall, I am happy with my order.

great outdoor plant

My cactus has grown quite larger since replanting it so good thing I planted it outside. It's now probably about 4ft tall and continues to produce white flowers. I'm looking to purchase a few more to add to my gardening.
