    Description

Marginatocereus marginatus - Mexican Fence Post Cactus

This listing is for a pack of 25 seeds.

A tree like column cactus in the wild, this comes from Mexico, where it is often used as a living fence.  It grows up to 5 metres tall either as a solitary stem or sometimes branching (quite often as a result of damage to the main stem).  It 4 - 7 ribs with prominent white margins.  The spines are quite short, no more than 1.5 cm long even in adult specimens.  Flowers are produced near the tops of the stems from bristly areoles.  The flowers are deep red with pink inner petals, some 4 cm long and 2 cm across.  These are followed by dryish fruit covered with bristles and full of black seeds.

Young plants require a degree of shade and protection from the sun as they normally develop in the shade of another plant until they push through the cover or the shade plant dies (as in the case of a mature cactus).  This need should be observed even in the higher latitudes to protect seedlings from becoming scorched and stunted.

Easy to germinate and grow on, full instructions can be found by going to my 'ME' page and following the links there.
