Totem Pole 'Minor'

Image 1 Image 2 Image 3

Also know as Lophocereus Schotti var. monstrosus cactus. The Totem Pole is a completely spineless mutant form of the Sonoran Senita cactus from Baja, Mexico. This multi-column cactus has a knobby growth habit and is equally stunning in a landscape or a container.

There are two forms of the Totem pole cactus. "Major" has thicker columns and more pronounced bumps and knobs on them. "Minor" has thinner columns and a more wavy appearance. "Minor" tends to grow a little faster and gets arms a little bit faster than the "Major" variant.

The Totem Pole Cactus has a unique and unusual growth habit characterized by a twisted and contorted stem with irregularly spaced, distorted ribs. Mature specimens can reach heights of several feet, and the growth pattern is often unpredictable and irregular. The Totem Pole Cactus is adapted to warm and arid climates. It is not highly cold-tolerant and may require protection from frost and freezing temperatures. In colder climates, it is often grown in containers that can be moved indoors during winter.

Ornamental Uses:

Container Gardening: The Totem Pole Cactus is popular for container gardening, allowing for versatility in placement on patios, decks, or balconies.

Xeriscaping: Due to its unique appearance and adaptation to arid conditions, it is suitable for xeriscaping and water-wise landscapes.

Focal Point: The twisted and contorted stems make it an excellent focal point in gardens or containers, especially in succulent or cactus gardens.

Rock Gardens: The irregular growth habit and distinctive form of the Totem Pole Cactus make it suitable for rock gardens.

Sculptural Element: The cactus adds a sculptural and architectural element to indoor and outdoor spaces, and its quirky appearance can be a conversation piece.

The Totem Pole Cactus is valued for its eccentric appearance and is a favorite among succulent and cacti enthusiasts for its quirky and eye-catching features.

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.
