Item details

This is a Sclerocactus uncinatus, or the Cat's Claw Cactus. This cactus is native to Southwest USA and Mexico. It is great as a landscape plant. This cactus is easy to care for and is a good reliable bloomer. We grew these from seed.

These are photos of the exact plant you will receive.

This Sclerocactus is in a 4" plastic pot. All of our plants are shipped bare root (carefully wrapped with no soil and no pot). We have a care sheet posted to give you tips on caring for succulents and cacti - contact me for a copy.


When you re-pot this plant, do not use a pot much larger than 4" diameter. If you put a succulent in a pot that is too large, the soil will take too long to dry since there are not enough roots to absorb the water and your plant may get root rot.


What is the difference between an cactus and a succulent?
All cacti are succulents, but not all succulents are cacti.
Succulents are plants that store water in their stem, leaves or root system.
A true cactus has a structure called an areole. It looks like a patch of cotton from which spines, flowers, branches and roots grow. While some succulents may have spines, they will not have areoles.
