A cactacea with a columnar habit that may also cluster at the base, which over time, in its natural habitat, can reach up to 2 m in height. Its deep green stems are entirely covered with thin erect and golden spines. Once it reaches mature age, it can develop laterally an orange-reddish cephalium. Its quite big funnel-shaped flowers are of a yellowish-white color.
