Organ Pipe

Image 1 Image 2 Image 3

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 cactus 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.

Cold Tolerance:

Stenocereus thurberi is adapted to hot desert environments and is generally sensitive to frost and freezing temperatures. It thrives in warm climates and may need protection from frost in colder regions. In areas prone to hard freezes, it is often grown in containers that can be moved indoors during winter.

Ornamental Uses:

Desert Landscapes: The organ pipe cactus is a popular choice for desert landscaping, particularly in regions with a hot and arid climate.

Container Gardening: Due to its distinctive appearance, it is often grown in containers and used as a focal point in patio or balcony gardens.

Xeriscaping: Stenocereus thurberi is suitable for xeriscaping, as it requires minimal water and is well-adapted to drought conditions.

Botanical Gardens: Its unique growth habit and impressive size make it a desirable addition to botanical gardens showcasing desert flora.

Ecological Significance:

The organ pipe cactus provides habitat and food for various wildlife species in its native desert ecosystem.
It plays a role in the ecological balance of the desert, supporting pollinators and other desert-adapted organisms.

Happy

Initially, wasn't sure whether I received the correct cactus. Was just a single stalk. But after chatting with the owner, I was assured I received the correct cactus, and it would just take time for it to multiply, like the picture. It's potted and I check it each morning for growth. Have purchased 8 cacti from The Cactus Outlet, and have been pleased with every purchase. Great business. Had one cactus fail me and was sent a replacement immediately. Super customer relations.
