Also know as Lophocereus Schotti var. monstrosus cactus. The Totem Pole is a completely spineless mutant form of the Sonoran Senita cactus from Baja, Mexico. This multi-column cactus has a knobby growth habit and is equally stunning in a landscape or a container.

There are two forms of the Totem pole cactus. "Major" has thicker columns and more pronounced bumps and knobs on them. "Minor" has thinner columns and a more wavy appearance. "Minor" tends to grow a little faster and gets arms a little bit faster than the "Major" variant.

The Totem Pole Cactus has a unique and unusual growth habit characterized by a twisted and contorted stem with irregularly spaced, distorted ribs. Mature specimens can reach heights of several feet, and the growth pattern is often unpredictable and irregular. The Totem Pole Cactus is adapted to warm and arid climates. It is not highly cold-tolerant and may require protection from frost and freezing temperatures. In colder climates, it is often grown in containers that can be moved indoors during winter.

Ornamental Uses:

Container Gardening: The Totem Pole Cactus is popular for container gardening, allowing for versatility in placement on patios, decks, or balconies.

Xeriscaping: Due to its unique appearance and adaptation to arid conditions, it is suitable for xeriscaping and water-wise landscapes.

Focal Point: The twisted and contorted stems make it an excellent focal point in gardens or containers, especially in succulent or cactus gardens.

Rock Gardens: The irregular growth habit and distinctive form of the Totem Pole Cactus make it suitable for rock gardens.

Sculptural Element: The cactus adds a sculptural and architectural element to indoor and outdoor spaces, and its quirky appearance can be a conversation piece.

The Totem Pole Cactus is valued for its eccentric appearance and is a favorite among succulent and cacti enthusiasts for its quirky and eye-catching features.



This shop has great customer service. Although they mainly sell pots they also have a few plants to sell. I bought one of these plants and it shipped very fast. The plant I received is beautiful but it was the wrong plant. I contacted the shop right away. I told them I will keep the plant but Iā€™d still want to buy the one I wanted. The plant I wanted also cost less so I offered to pay the difference too. The shop apologized for the mistake and said they will send the right plant right away and to keep the plant i already received. I thought that was awesome, thoughtful and very professional and that goes a long way. Thank you so much and I really appreciate that.


Simply a beautiful and artistic Peety pot. Will be the pot for an Adenia metamorpha and the two will definitely display awesome artistry.
