Ocotillo Plants at Cactus Joe's Blue Diamond Nursery Las Vegas
 OCOTILLO [ Fouquieria splendens]

How can you tell if your Ocotillo is healthy and viable?

Check for “greenish” veins running vertically along the branches. Alternately, you can start at the very tip of one of the branches and cut the very tip off with clippers. If healthy, you will see a concentric “green” ring on the interior of the branch. Keep in mind that Ocotillo sometimes leaf out in cycles. It is not uncommon for the Ocotillo plant to have green leaves, lose the leaves and then “leaf out” again.
