In 2004 there were only 500 individuals of Haageocereus tenuis left in habitat. Between 2004 and 2014 70% of this population died off, and it is expected 70% of the remaining population will die by 2024.
We acquired this plant from a retired cactus researcher with his collection of intensely rare field collected Opuntias.
