Old Man Cactus 6"
Hair. Long, beautiful hair. These “old men” need not be concerned about their hair ever falling out, for the woolly hairs on these old man cacti are a defining, purposeful attribute. It’s thought that the hairs provide protection from the intense UV to which these high-elevation mountain dwellers are exposed. Besides shading the stem, the hairs appear to be a means for collecting moisture in native habitats that are not only very high up but also quite dry. They offer excellent texture, color, and quality. And hair. Behind that woolly beauty are sharp spines, so keep that in mind when handling. Potted in a 6" nursery pot.
