Plant Care Guide
Place in bright indirect light or a space that receives a few hours of morning sun. In hot summers, more shade may be necessary.
Check the soil for dampness once every week or so. If dry, add about a half cup of water to each plant, keeping in mind that any excess will build up in the bottom and should be avoided. Water should be applied to soil, not to the plants themselves.
Level of Care
Easy! Just check the soil for dryness weekly and avoid too much direct sunlight.
Plants remove toxins that can build up in indoor spaces. A general rule of thumb is 1 medium houseplant per 100 square feet of space effectively cleans the air we breathe.
Feed with a mild cactus fertilizer about once a month during the growing season. Do not fertilize in winter.
Normal household temperatures 60-80°F are best.
When repotting the cacti, use a well-draining Cacti/Succulent Potting Mix for best results.
Pruning & Propagation
Prune damaged areas by cutting to the stem. To propagate, plant cuttings in soil.
Sorry! While some cacti are non-toxic if consumed by pets, some have spines that might cause harm.
