Plant Bio

Stenocereus beneckei

Strangely hard to find, this beautiful cactus is native to areas of Central Mexico and features something of a ghostly look thanks to the silvery-white coating on its new growth. When it’s happy, it produces small creamy flowers that open at night. Over the years, it’s also been classified as Cereus beneckei, Lemaireocereus beneckei, Hertrichocereus beneckei, and Rathbunia beneckei.

Like other Cacti it prefers lots and lots of light indoors. Keep it within 2 to 3 feet of an unobstructed south-, west-, or east-facing window for best results. If you don’t have a bright window, plant lights will do just fine.

It also has low water needs and can tolerate drought. Water just before the potting mix dries out. If you’re not sure if it needs water, one way to check is to insert a wood toothpick in the drainage hole in the pot. Leave it in place for a minute or two, then pull it out. If the toothpick comes out clean, it’s probably time to water. If the toothpick comes out with potting mix adhering to it, then you can probably hold off watering.

Note: This plant may have some natural degree of toxicity and may cause discomfort or illness if ingested. Additionally, exposure to the sap of this plant may cause discomfort to individuals with a sensitivity to it upon contact. Grown for ornamental purposes and not intended for human or animal consumption.
