Old Man (4")
Native to the arid regions of Mexico, the old man cactus is a spiky, tall, cylindrical cactus that can reach incredible heights of 10 to 15 meters or more. 
A statement succulent, the Cephalocereus senilis is unmistakable with its shaggy coat of long silver hair, which serves as the source of its nickname � old man cactus. It is reminiscent of an older man�s long unkempt hair.
