Pot: 8 cm.
A succulent plant with an erect and columnar stem, which branches out at the base and can reach up to 2 meters in height. The stem, made up of shallow ribs, is of a light green color, covered by small whitish areoles, from which long thin white-silver spines grow. The spines are similar to a thick white hair that covers the plant almost entirely. Flowering occurs in late summer at the apex of the plant, blooming with large tubular flowers of a red-purple color.
