Senita Cactus (Pachycereus)

  • The Senita Cactus (Pachycereus Schottii) is by far the rarest of Arizona’s big three cacti (the others being saguaro and organ pipe).
  • Plants are found only in a small narrow band along the southern edge of Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument.
  • The best place to see them is at Senita Basin, on the sheltered, south-facing slopes of the Puerto Blanco Mountains.
  • It forms extensive clusters, of a hundred or more stems, up to 20 feet tall, branching from the base.
SOIL - Try our recommended Organic Soil
  • All cacti need well-draining soil.
  • Achieve this is by adding horticultural-grade sand and grit to the compost component of the soil.
  • A good starting ratio for the mix’s components is one-third compost, one-third horticultural-grade sand, and one-third grit.
  • If the soil in your current container takes longer than a minute to drain, consider repotting with a potting soil designed specifically for cacti and succulents.
FERTILIZER - Try our recommended Organic Fertilizer
  • During the growing season, a balanced fertilizer, which has been diluted to 1/4 strength, can be added to the water for each watering.
  • A balanced fertilizer is one that has roughly equal proportions of Nitrogen, Phosphorous, and Potassium.
  • A 10-10-10 fertilizer diluted to 1/4 strength is ideal.
LIGHT
  • Most cacti like bright light, but not all can tolerate intense, direct sunlight, especially in conjunction with high temperatures.
  • The intensity of the light that a plant will thrive in depends on the species.
  • A plant that is grown in optimal light conditions will “look normal” (unstressed), and is more likely to flower than one grown in sub-optimal lighting conditions.
WATER
  • While growing, cacti should be watered at least once a week.
  • During each watering, give the soil a good soaking, so that water runs out of the ‘drainage holes’ of the pots.
