Saguaro Cactus Collapse and Die in Arizona’s Ongoing, Scorching Heatwave


You know it’s hot when the Cacti in Arizona are keeling over, losing limbs, and dying. Various plants are just not doing well in the southern state during the severe ongoing heat wave.

“The blistering heat wave making its way across the country has caused giant cactuses in Arizona to collapse.

As temperatures near Phoenix soared to over 110 degrees Fahrenheit for the third week in a row, the area’s saguaro cactuses have begun losing arms, tilting to the side and even collapsing entirely.

According to officials, the near month-long heat wave and lack of rain are to blame for the damage done to certain plant populations.

“These plants are adapted to this heat, but at some point the heat needs to cool down and the water needs to come,” Tania Hernandez, a research scientist with the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, told Reuters.”
