that According to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, a saguaro is usually 50-70 years old before it grows its first branch. And this is if the arm grows quickly. It may even take 100 years before a saguaro can grow its first arm. 
A saguaro must be 35 years old before it can grow any flowers.
The bloom of the saguaro is Arizona’s state flower.
The roots of a saguaro expand like an accordion to absorb as much water as possible.
The saguaro is primarily made up of water.
An adult saguaro may weigh up to 6 tons.
It’s illegal in Arizona to move a saguaro cactus off of private or public property without a permit.
Saguaro cacti are very important to the Sonoran ecosystem, as a large number of animals use the cacti as a host plant.
