The "Espostoa Ianata" or "Snowball Cactus" or "Peruvian Old Man Cactus" is a two-branched cactus that adds striking character to any room!

The cactus can grow up to 8 inches (20 cm) in diameter and 23 feet (7 m) tall. The Espostoa lanata grows quickly as a new plant but as soon as it reaches maturity, its growth slows down significantly and will eventually stop producing flowers.
Care Level Rating: Easy
Notes: This variety measures in at 160cm in height. All large plants come with their plastic nursery pot only. Ceramic pots are sold separately.
