This hardy tree cactus with branching stems resembles the giant saguaro's of Arizona but it is much more forgiving in cultivation. Here along the upper Texas coast we receive most of our rainfall during the cool winter months which is not to the liking of most large cactus. The Argentine saguaro has been perfectly happy growing through several record rainfalls and extreme summer heat to 112 degrees.
Plant are in 4" or pint size pots and are approx. 3" tall
Notes and observations about this plant

If this cactus is kept indoors in the winter, then set out in the summer they Sun burn very quickly. I use a shade cloth.
