7 things you might not know about the Saguaro Cactus The saguaro cactus can only be found in the Sonoran Desert. Saguaros grow very slowly. A young cactus may only grow 1 to 1.5 inches in its first eight years, while an adult saguaro can reach 60 feet in height. The amount of available water impacts their growth. Saguaros that grow at high altitudes tend to congregate on warm, south-facing slopes. At 125 years, a saguaro is generally considered an adult. The lifespan of the saguaro is 150 to 200 years.
