-About Pachycereus marginatus /Mexican Fence Post Cactus-

Pachycereus marginatus also commonly known as Mexican Fence Post. The beautiful basally clumping columnar cactus has dark green stems with 5-7 white ribs covered in short spines. The stems grow up to 50 feet tall and 8 inches in diameter. The famous Mexican Fence Post blooms in the spring; there are many kinds of colors, including pink, yellow, white, and green.

-How to care for Pachycereus marginatus /Mexican Fence Post Cactus-

Sun/Location: Mexican Fence Post prefers to grow in full sun and partial shade as a low-maintenance plant. It is important to note that young Pachycereus marginatus will be sunburned by overexposure to the sun.

Soil/Pot: Well-drained cactus soil mix work well for the columnar cactus. Adding soil with sand, grit, and perlite to create a desert environment. Using pots with drainage holes or planting them directly in the garden is recommended.

Watering: The soft succulent can grow untouched for decades, so you don't need to water it frequently. Allow the soil to dry out between deep watering completely.

We pack all shipments by hand. 

We have many years of experience shipping live succulents and cactus plants. We pay close attention to packing and have developed an expert shipping method. All succulents are packed and protected with polypropylene cotton (this is a stuffing used for dolls). We find this is the most effective material for protecting live plants while in transit. It is important to us that you are able to Keep going and Keep growing without any stress about the quality of the product or packaging.

Shipping Speed

In general, it takes 3 to 10 days for plants to arrive after you place your order. All orders will be shipped out 48 hours after you place them. We ship the orders on work days(from Monday to Saturday) and all year round. In normal conditions, it will take 3-10 days for you to receive the package. Estimated shipping times are offered as needed.

HOLIDAYS: During weeks in which a holiday occurs - Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, etc. - shipping may be delayed until the following week.

EXTREME WEATHER NOTICE: The Next Gardener reserves the right to hold shipments during storms or periods of extreme heat or cold. This is to ensure your plant does not suffer while it is in transit.

Winter shipping

We insist on shipping succulents to our customers all year round. However due to the extreme winter weather, although we pack succulents with as much protective material as possible, plants are still at increased risk of frost on their way to colder areas. We highly recommend adding one 72-hour heat pack to your order or you can request a hold on the package until it warms up.

Please note that The Next Gardener is not responsible for packages that suffer cold damage without a heat pack. We cannot control the weather. Order at your own risk.

Hawaii, Alaska, and Other US Territories

Fortunately, shipping is available to Alaska, Guam, and other U.S. Territories. However, due to numerous factors beyond our control, including customs checks and shipping delays, free shipping to Hawaii and Puerto Rico is not an option. And we can not provide the 14-day quality guarantee for orders going to Hawaii and Puerto Rico. The buyer will assume all risk of damage when a delivery is delayed. We appreciate your understanding.

Sorry. No International Shipping for now!!!
