Organ Pipe Cactus (Stenocereus Thurberi) – The Cactus Outlet

Sold out

Also known as Stenocereus thurberi. This large, dark green, multi-column cactus is from the Sonoran desert and features small white flowers in the Spring. The fruit on this cactus, Pitaya, is still harvested by indigenous peoples to this day. The Organ Pipe looks striking grown in a container or landscape. The native range only extends about 25 miles North into the United States in a national park called the Organ Pipe national monument. The Southern range of the Organ pipe cactus goes for hundreds of miles into Mexico.

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!

Happy, Impressed

Impressed and happy with it. Packaged very well with great instructions and care. Very elegant cactus.

Lexie Goldsmith
Love the multi-column aspect

Takes up a decent amount of space once more columns start to grow and gets very tall. A good looking plant for my yard.

Luciana Henson
Typical looking Cacti, but produces fruit & flowers

Organ pipes are what you think of when you think of a cactus. They are a personal favorite of mine due to the stunning small flowers that bloom and the fruits that can be picked off.
