"Gray Ghost Organ Pipe" is a large tree-like cactus. This cactus will grow up to 16 feet high. The cactus ribs are pronounced and almost bare except for the areoles that grow one to four long brown spines. Flowers are large and white and fully open at night and stay semi open during the day. After blooming the flowers will mature into egg-shaped fruit that change color from yellow, orange, green to purple. This cactus may get its name because of its powdery blue-green color and massive size. Best to plant in-ground if your area does not drop to freezing levels. If kept in a pot, you will most likely need to repot many times through out its lifetime.
