Is this a Saguaro and how do i fix it?

s9601694July 6, 2012

I bought a Saguaro online and received a very crooked one. so my questions to the experts are:

1 - IS this even a saguaro (looks like one to me)

2 - is it possible to get it straight? if so, how do i do that?

I had a very crooked cactus, i just put it in full sun and it straightened itself out ... looks like a saguaro to me, but there is the small chance that it is a pachycereus pringlei, which is nearly identical to saguaro

I think it's rather a Pachycereus pringlei. Your plant is too slender for a saguaro that size and it also seems that the annual growth is more one can expect from a Saguaro.

A 2-3 foot saguaro sounds like a butt load of money... they are very slow growing, one i bought in january barely grew like a centimeter o_o

s9601694,

Ask the Tucson Cactus & Succulent Society. They usually sell rescued Saguaros for a very fair price.

I like what they are doing :D those are pretty cheap if you ask me ... do you have to go to their sales to buy something or can you mail order? (Probably have to go to sales ...)
