Saguaro cacti, despite their name, are a tree that naturally occurs in arid shrublands, deserts, and extreme deserts. Saguaro cacti require Plants skill level 6 to sow. A mature saguaro cactus yields Wood 15 Wood.

Growing

Saguaro cacti have a base growing time of 5 days, need a minimum soil fertility of 5%, and have a fertility sensitivity rating of 0%. The following table details how long it takes for saguaro cacti to grow in each growable ground type, factoring in the plant resting time and being in ideal growing conditions:

  • Ground Type Gravel Soil Rich Soil Hydroponics
    Fertility (%) 70 100 140 280
    Real Grow Time (days)[1] 9.23 9.23 9.23 N/A
    Base Yield/day[2] 1.63 1.63 1.63 N/A
    1. Actual days to grow, taking into account rest time.
    2. Per plant, assuming Crop Yield Multiplier of 1.0. Note that Difficulty settings change the Crop Yield Multiplier.
  • Saguaro cacti surprisingly have the highest wood yield per day out of all wood-yielding plants (except the singular Gauranlen tree) in all soils. But on the other hand looking at wood per work it's one of the worst wood-yielding plants, especially in fertile soil.

    Saguaro cacti are also unique in the respect that they are the only product-yielding plant that can grow in sand.

    Food Production

    Unlike in real life, saguaro cacti don't yield any human-edible products in RimWorld.
