Senita Cactus (Lophocereus schottii) | Pachycereus – The Cactus Outlet

Sold out

Also know as Lophocereus Schotti, this multi-column cactus grows to 10 feet or more. Grows very similar to the Organ pipe, Mexican fence post and Totem pole cacti. Totem pole cacti are the spineless mutant sub species of the Senita cactus.

Multiple branches form from the bottom of the main stem of the Senita cactus as the plant matures. The Senita gets dense spines that look like hair covering the tops of the individual columns as they age. These cacti will tolerate nights into the mid-twenties and have the classic Southwest desert look. Very easy container or landscape plants.  

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!

Big Fan!

Better than expected. Larger than life, arrived in great condition. The only minor issue is that I was expecting some kind of temporary planter but there was none and when I opened the box the soil went all over the room. Following that debacle, couldn’t be happier!

Sue Shepard
Good quality purchase and Shipped free

Not only is my cactus high quality, but it even shipped for free! Can't beat that.

Grows to be pretty big

The spines get bigger and cover more surface area as it gets older. Some of my older Senitas are taller than me!

Olive Winters
Pleasently surprised by this great find

I was doing some browsing online and came across this store so I decided to give it a shot. The cactus I recieved was healthy, large, and a great color green. Will purchase again.
