The stems may be globus at a young age but reach up to 5 feet tall at maturity with a 3 inch diameter. The pale green stems are also covered in thin, yet sharp, gray to brown spines. H. versicolor typically blooms in summer months with different colored flowers depending on the cultivar ranging from white, red, purple, or pink. H. versicolor is grown as an ornamental plant for its tall growth habit and showy flowers.Haageocereus versicolor grows best in full sun to partial shade while sitting in well-draining soils. Water the plant adequately during summer and keep dry during winter. Allow the soil to completely dry out in between waterings. USDA plant hardiness zones 9a to 11b.

Haageocereus versicolor seeds require consistent moisture and humidity to germinate, but the soil should not remain soaking wet. Cloning boxes, ziplock bags, and other containers that retain humidity are ideal to store sown pots. Use a well-draining sterilized soil mix. Seeds should be sown directly on top of the potting mixture and lightly covered with a thin layer of sand or potting mix, just enough to cover the seeds. Germinating pots should be kept indoors, out of extreme light and heat. Ideal germination temperatures range from 75°F to 85°F. Germination typically takes 2 to 4 weeks to occur. Even with optimal conditions, germination may be slow and sporadic.
