Pachycereus Pringlei - Mexican giant cardon cactus 40cm
Pachycereus pringlei - its native northwestern Mexico, this impressive plant (the tallest cactus species in the world), can live for several hundred years, and reach over 10m in height. When grown as a house plant however, it's a much more manageable size. It has a columnar habit with ribbed stems, and as it matures it forms lots of tree-like branches.
Light and temperature: Because these plants grow best in desert conditions, make sure they get enough sun and heat. When growing them indoors, place them next to a window that gets plenty of bright light.
Watering and feeding: This is a drought tolerant plant with low watering requirements. You should water it moderately until it’s well established. After that, this plant can survive on much less water.
Refrain from overwatering your plant as too much water can cause irreversible damage.
The Mexican Giant Cardon does not have a great need for fertilizer.
However, feed it with a cactus fertilizer from time to time if you feel like your plant needs a boost.
Toxicity: toxic to pets
