Also known by its scientific name, Marginatocereus Marginatus, the Mexican Fence Post Cactus is one of the most popular forms of cacti for houseplant lovers to add to their home. While they’re often grown as outdoor plants, their indoor variants are just as beautiful and require little to no assistance in order to flourish. You won’t need to worry much about the temperature, humidity and water conditions of this cactus, unlike many other houseplants.
As its most commonly used nickname would suggest, the Mexican Fence Post cactus is beloved due to the way in which it grows. Once matured, it takes on the classic upright stature of a cactus, making it easy to maintain a group of them without having to worry about leaving space for one another. Many Mexican Fence Post owners like to line them up side by side in order to create a natural fence along the walls of their homes.
The Mexican Fence Post Indoor Cactus is native to parts of Central Mexico, where it would naturally encounter drought conditions and a blazing hot sun. As a result, it possesses the increased durability that is often found in cacti from the same environments. Whether you’re brand new to the houseplant world or have been tending to plants for years, this cactus will be nothing but supportive and grow relatively independent of you.
Unsurprisingly, you should avoid placing this cacti anywhere that is accessible by children or pets that you believe would take interest in it. While it’s considered to be non-toxic, its sharp spines can cause severe discomfort when ingested or brushed against.
