Old Man of the Andes


What a difference a day makes! Oreocereus celsianus in bud on day 1.

Day 2 and the bloom opens! It’s the pistil and stamen!

Nice!

Oreocereus celsianus gets 10 to 12ft. tall, and is hardy to 10 °F. High altitude from the Andes, the hairs will collect fog, dripping droplets down to the roots.

While they can be grown from stem cuttings, we’ve had our difficulties.

Here’s a habitat shot from a U Texas Cactus Field Research team.

Some wonderful plants: Oreocereus celsianus growing near the border between Argentina and Bolivia.

Now that’s something.
