Pilosocereus Pachycladus, also known as the “Tree Cactus” or “Blue Torch Cactus”, is a part of the Pilosocereus genus that is native to Mexico, Brazil, and the Caribbean. There are about 50 different species within the Pilosocereus genus, including several with an exciting blueish-green color.
The ever-fierce Brazilian Blue Cactus can grow rather quickly. In fact, the Tree Cactus can grow as much as 1 to 2 feet per year! Over time, the Tree Cactus will begin to branch out and resemble a delightful tree, as its name implies. The lofty Tree Cactus actually has the incredible potential to grow as tall as 33 feet (10 meters) given the right environment and resources.
This columnar cactus is lined vertically with ribs. The dignified Tree Cactus is even said to resemble the famous Saguaro, except of course for its distinct turquoise or bluish-silver color. As it ages, the new growth will have a more vibrant blue hue and its yellow spines will gradually turn gray. The amazing Tree Cactus flowers annually in the summer and later develops a pink fleshy fruit. Beautiful white-yellow tube-shaped flowers will bloom primarily at night.
