The Stenocereus is a widely adored genus of cactus, hailing from many regions between North and South America. Historically, aged trees offered native tribes cane-like trunks suitable for home construction.
Many Stenocereus cacti bloom nocturnal flowers near the apex of the stems and some within this genus even produce edible fruit, similar to dragon fruit.
Although most Stenocereus are slow growing cacti, this vast family comes in many shapes, colours and sizes - all of which are reliable plants, typically easy to care for and grow.
WATER: Water generously when soil is dry in Autumn/Summer/Spring, seldom in Winter.
OUTDOORS: Absolutely, position your plant in half day sun, a bright shaded area or full day sun. We recommend watering plants in full day sun more frequently in the peak of Summer (biweekly - weekly); this regular watering over summer helps prevent sunburn in extreme weather.
INDOORS: This plant is comfortable in well lit indoor areas - preferably close to a window (preferably 2-3+ hours of direct sun on a sunny day)
NB: The most affordable and efficient way to measure if it is time to water your cacti is by using a water meter. When the meter reads “DRY” its time to water again. Remember, over watering Cacti is the main cause of death. Head to our online store to buy your water meter today!
