Cactus Gardening

Parent Category: Gardening
All cactus plants are succulents, but not all succulents are cactus plants. Being able to tell the difference is one of the concerns in the cactus gardening section. Other questions to be asked and answered include the specifics of a cactus plant's adaptability, environmental impact, growing conditions, harmful stresses, native habitats, propagation methods, and value for people and wildlife.
Some people wait until March or so, when new growth begins, toprune the cactus.
Yes Africa does have cactus.
Sonoran Desert is the desert in North America which has Cacti.
You probably know that Cacti are desert plants. That means they arenot used to or adapted to shade; so as long as the cover doesn'tinfringe on the light it receives, the cactus will be fine.Generally, a dog will only sniff a cactus once, but some types canbe toxic to dogs and it is best to be on the...
It looks like you are asking about the saguaro cactus. There is notype of cactus with a name that is any closer to "saroya".
The cactus seed may be found within the fruit . It tends to germinate between 66 and 70-81 degrees Fahrenheit [19 - 21-27 degrees Celsius]. Germination tends to take about 2-4 weeks. A properly treated cactus plant may be of good size within 1-2 years of germination.
This gigantic cactus can be found in desert regions of Arizona, SCalifornia, and Mexico,
they always absorb sunlight, and sorry no other answers. Never touch a cactus!
It is to store food & water.
Carnegiea gigantea named in honour of Andrew Carnegie The Scottish philanthropist .The previous name before reclassification was Cereus giganteus under which name it can still be found. The common name comes from the Native American name Suhuaro.

Purple pengin sweat is what came out of your cactus
actually, the Christmas cactus doesn't necessarily always bloom at Christmas. it blooms naturally in the beginning of October and sometimes as late as January.
You need to ejaculate into the soil for added nutrients.
No, a cactus does not have thorns, it has spines.
the prickly pear is the opuntia genus and the most popular one is opuntia ficus indica and that is the one that people eat the pads and the fruit which looks like a pear.
Carefully pull the needles out and and squeeze/cut the cactus.
Cactus will react to not enough water by turning brown and basically will look very unhappy.
That's mean that your cactus is growing well and very naturally . So don't scare , that's normal for all cactuses . You should give your cactus a little much water when it's overgrowing : when the cactus have red spines ! I hope i helped you !
yes you can own this cactus if it is on the property you buy..however ..you will pay more for it in arazonia (property that is) is one is on your site. however again..you can not move it. damage it. or molest it in anyway (i am sure molesting a cactus is not a good thing to begin with).
No, not all cactus es grow flowers.
It should be kept in a well-lit area with a source of humidity. Youshould moderately water it and add fertilizer to encourage growth
It starts getting white balls on its thorns or by getting a spiderweb like substance on it.
Water , dissolved nutrients , and byproducts of photosynthesis are stored in the cactus stem. The water and the dissolved nutrients are sent up into the stem from the cactus plant's roots. They're held in the stem until they can be used in the photosynthetic interaction with sunlight. From that...
They aren't originally from anywhere, they evolved and adapted all across the world.
Pachycereus pringlei , also known asMexican Giant Cardon or Elephant Cactus, is a species of cactusthat is native to northwestern Mexico. At 63 feet, it is thetallest cactus in the Americas or, for that matter, in the world.
A saguaro can grow to be over 20 meters tall.
As in sewing needles or pinhead needles - no. But they're long, narrow and really pointy, which make them very much like needles.
It is best to let your cacti soil dry out all the way before watering, this way you will not risk the cacti getting root rot. If cacti are not allowed to dry out in between each time they are watered a number of problems can occur. Stick your finger about an inch deep into the substrate and see...
Quite simple, cactus live in areas where it rains only a few times a year, so it stores as much water as possible so it can survive in the desert
Opuntia Nopales That's all I know
There are few animals that will eat most cacti as many areunpalatable and contain hallucinogenics. The prickly pear, however,is eaten by such animals as rabbits, hares, tortoises, deer andjavelina.
The most common scientific name is: Echinopsis spachiana
Yes there is several prickly pears and some others that are hardy well below freezing, as long as they are well drained and dont stay moist for too long they should be fine. the cold and snow arent what is gonna kill it but the moist soil will make it rot. Planting them in a raised bed with a soil...
certain types of cactus, like the prickly pear cactus, can actually be eaten by people. (be sure to burn off the spines first, though.) Cactus is edible to many animals, but they usually avoid it because of the spines.
In the first place they protect themselves from dehydration by having a minimum surface to dry out from. they store a large water reserve for dry periods. they are unpleasant to taste and have spikes or needles that make them painful to eat.
Cacti do need water they just handle it differently. They are adapted by nature to store it in their system and use it as they need it.
The adaptations of the cactus includes small and spiky leaves that reduce evaporation of water. It also prevents loss of water. The cactus has also a thick and juicy stem that stores water. It carries out photosynthesis like any other normal green plant. Waxy leaves, long roots, have needles ...
the spikey things and there used for poking stuff Answer The main parts are roots to anchor the plant and draw up moisture. The barrell,or trunk,and branches which store the moisture and keep the plant alive. The spines are modified leaves and do the same job.
the thorns are actually their leaves. They are small so there is less surface area to lose water from through transpiration. caucuses have thorns so insects that eat that sort of plant or people who want caucuses get poked and the little creatures die on them. if you look closely at a cactus in the...
The Cactus plant lives for extended periods of time due the lack of predators; nothing is there to kill it.
Cactus stems are very thick because they store water.
Photosynthesis takes place in the trunk and stems of the saguarocactus.
The 'spines' of a cactus attach directly to the stem of the plant.
the cactus includes small and spiky leaves that reduce evaporation of water. It also prevents loss of water. The cactus has also a thick and juicy stem that stores water. .
there are some edible and some not but im for sure that the barrel catus
The saguaro cactus [ Carnegiea gigantea ] may sprout from seed within 2-4 weeks . But it'll take 40+ years for the cactus to sprout branches and flowers. During the first four decades of its life, it concentrates energizing photosynthetic products into such life supporting processes as growth and...
Cactus spikes are a defense mechanism. They the plant be more of scary looking, so no body dares to touch or harm it.
The Easter blooming cactus [ Schlumbergera gaertneri ] is a successful houseplant. So it can live for many years if its environment supports its needs. It's a jungle cactus from Brazil. So it's the opposite of the desert cactus in its needs. Specifically, the Easter cactus isn't used to...
Cacti are strictly New World plants and so not occur naturally inthe Sahara.
they store the water when it rains and then when they need water they have it because they store it
Depending on the size of the cactus, the pot it is in and the environment it is in, no more than once a week, and then a very small amount. For example - Several small, decorative cacti planted, in well drained cactus mix, in an unglazed, flattish, terracotta dish need water every other week when...
The saguaro blossom [ Carnegiea gigantea ] is the state flower of Arizona . In 1901, it became Arizona's territorial flower. In 1931, it was confirmed again, but as the state flower.
All cacti are succulents, but not all succulents are cacti.
A cactus does not have spines inside its leaves. It has no leavesas they have evolved into spines.
When I transplanted mine I put on gloves, pulled up some of the plant and laid in on the ground in a dry place with mostly morning sun putting just a little dirt around it. The plant will also root by laying the plant on the ground. New roots will form under each piece - it is easy to start them....
The saguaro is primarily a cactus of the Sonoran Desert in Arizonaand Mexico.
Yes cactus plant has a sunken stomata .
It is Haworthia fasciata,it is a species of the genus Haworthia in the family Asphodelaceae. Plants are small (less than 10 cm). Leaves are dark green with narrow white crested strips on the reverse. At the end of the leaf, a non acute spine. It is often confused with Aloe aristata because of...

Applying fertilizers, checking growing conditions, pruning, and re-potting are ways to encourage thickening in Euphorbia trigona . Specifically, the succulent plant in question also goes by the common names African milk tree and cathedral plant, in reference to its church spire-like growth...
Leaves provide extra surface area for water to evaporate out of the plant. In the arid desert, plants need all the water they can get.
Yes, cacti are found in a variety of habitats, including the grasslands and even in a rainforest.
their is a bird in the desert that sometimes makes it nest in a cactus
If you want flowers to grow on your cactus you are supposed to water your cactus.
Really, really old.
thick and waxy skin, spiky leaves, flexible stem and shallow roots.
it is their evolutionary defense against attackers. In a desert environment, water is very scarce. Therefore, every small amount of water absorbed by plants is indispensable to plant survival. The purpose of thorns is to protect the fleshy stems (which contain water) of the cactus from predators.
I just finished the play and I trust that the movie is pretty much the same as far as Harvey goes. Harvey is the dentist Julian's best friend. He gets his teeth done for free much to Stephanie's (the nurse) disgust. He also poses as the fake boyfriend to Stephanie's fake wife which is quite funny...
In cacti the leaves have become reduced ( to prevent water loss via transpiration) and the stem has become the photosynthetic body. Being in the stem there are no or very few stomata ( where water is lost from) and the water is able to be stored in the stem to help it survive long times without...
Then "Chascon" is probably the best name for it, unless you'd prefer something like "Spike" or "Tangles."
The largest known saguaro is the Champion Saguaro. It grows inMaricopa County, Arizona, and is 1308 centimeters (45.3 ft) tallwith a girth of 301 centimeters (10 ft).
There are cactus farms, especially in Arizona, that commerciallygrow cacti for landscaping and houseplants.
The cactus plants live in any Desert area. But sometimes it depends on the type of cactus it is.
It depends on the type of cactus and how much of each root is still in the ground. Remove all of it if you want it gone.
All I know is it hurts for a while. The toxin's in the plant linger in the area of the puncture. My daughter was stuck recently on the ankle and if she moves her foot/ankle in a certain way she screams out in pain...a pain that lasts quite a while. We are still unsure of how to deal with this pain...
Yes, saguaro is the biggest cactus and it can be found in Mexicoand South America and it has the height of larger than a 5-storeybuilding (58 feet tall most likely). thus it is a slow growingcactus. Another Answer: No, the saguaro is not the largest cactus. Pachycereuspringlei , also known as...
\nIt depends on the temperature and the amount of humidity in the air. You should test the soil with your fingertip: When it is still a bit humid, don't water the plant. When the soil is really dry, give it water, but take care, that the soil is not drenched.
In order to clear land for new houses, facilities, and other necessities of civilization, man will usually decimate whatever foliage is in the area. While the morals of this are frequently debated, a n endangered species act has been placed on the Saguaro cactus. . or . He is causing severe...
This gorgeous plant can grow to be up to 10 feet tall.
Yes, they can if it is dry ,hot ,and not a lot of rain . Even if it is high up.
It's water from a cactus! The cactus has collected that water!x
Yes it can ... particularly if it becomes embedded under the skin. The body will make every effort to consume foreign items, such as thorns for instance, and if that thorn is infected in any way, the surrounding tissues can also become infected, causing what the medical community calls a skin ulcer....
There is no cactus capable of shooting its spines.
because it helps bring precipitation to the cactus...
