Cactus Care

Posted by Alexander Holdinghausen on

Cacti are some of the most care-free houseplants. Found in desert climates in the wild, they can survive considerable drought–often going weeks between waterings.

Light

Your Cactus needs as much bright light to full sunlight as it can possibly get.

Water

Water only when the soil is completely dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer.

Humidity

Your Cactus requires no additional humidity, and will thrive in dry environments.

Temperature

Your Cactus prefers temperatures between 15-30 degrees. Keep away from heating or cooling vents, fans, heaters, and air conditioning units that cause fluctuating temperatures.

Food

Before applying any type of plant food, make sure the soil is already damp-never apply to dry soil. Your Cactus requires fertilizer once in the spring and once in the summer. Apply an all-purpose, liquid plant food diluted to half strength. Do not fertilize your cactus in Autumn or winter months when growth naturally slows.

Toxicity

Non-toxic to pets and children.

Additional Care

Some plants are more green in colour, and some have a white flecked coating- this is a natural protective response from the cacti! It may fleck off naturally, but no need to take it off yourself.
