Stenocereus pruinosus (Gray Ghost)






Lemaireocereus pruinosus is commonly known as Grey Ghost or Organ Pipe is a columnar cactus, with sparsely to richly branching stems and reaches a size of 4-5 m in height.. Its stems are of a green color, covered with a waxy-prune skin layer, that protects them, hence the name of the species. It consists of 4-6 ribs, separated by wide intervals and equipped with wavy margins, and rather short and sparse brownish-gray spines. Each areole, present along the undulations of the ribs, has about 3 or 4 short and straight spines.. This species has small, white flowers tinged with pink.
Lemaireocereus Pruinosus blooms in summers with small pinkish-white funnel-shaped flowers with edible fruit. 


Lemaireocereus Pruinosus is a very low maintenance plant. Like all cacti, this plant goes dormant during winter, so you should not water it during this time and keep it in a bright, cool position. During the growing season, water it as soon as the soil is thoroughly dry and keep it in a very well-lit spot, such as a south-facing window or outside in warm temperatures.

In mid-spring, feed with a diluted all-purpose fertilizer or one formulated for cactus and succulents.

Landscape Uses

Usually these are outdoor plant, well suited to desert gardening and xeriscaping.

The easiest to keep alive - Cactus thrive on neglect! Coming from desert climates cactus love sun! However beware of the Indian afternoon sun! Keeping them in extreme heat, especially behind a glass which magnifies the heat can cause the cactus to burn. If you notice the cactus turning brown or yellow on the side facing the sun, try giving it a cooler place to thrive in!

For watering cacti, the golden rule is to make sure the soil is completely dry before watering! This will stop the roots from rotting. It is advised to always use a pot with a drainage hole so that excess water can get drained out. If kept in a sunny area, you will need to water it once every week. If it is in a semi shaded or filtered light area, you might need to water it once in 2 weeks.

Cacti like soil that is well aerated and fast draining. You can fertilise the cactus in the summer months when it is in its growing season. During the winters it is best to cut back on any fertiliser and let the plant rest.
