A New York buyer recently asked "Thanks for the great (Saguaro) cactus. I am hoping you can answer a a few questions: 1. How can I figure out which side should be facing south, I hear that's important ? 2. I planted it into a pot and only after noticed it was leaning just slightly - is that a big deal?"
Answer: You don't need to worry about north-south orientation in the eastern states like new York. Your sunny days are not strong enough to burn the north side of the plant. As far as the leaning, The saguaro roots are very slow. It will take at least through the summer for it to become established. So it will be unstable for quite some time. For plants that are top heavy like this we usually place some boulders on top of the soil next to the base of the saguaro to help hold it in place. Heavy boulders also help compress the soil and the condensation formed under the boulders encourage root growth. You can also use a ridged pipe placed vertically next to the saguaro on the side that it is leaning towards to help hold it up. Here are some photos of the way we set them up.
