How to care
How to care
Cacti will thrive in bright indirect light or direct full sun. They’re perfect for South and South-West facing window sills that receive sunlight too strong for most houseplants.
Water once every 2 - 3 weeks, allowing its soil to completely dry out between waterings to prevent overwatering and root rot. During winter water once a month.
Cacti do not have any particular humidity requirements - but are not suited to very humid environments like bathrooms or terrariums.
Sad Plant Signs
Wrinkled stem or leaves: under-watered. Dry out between waterings, then water thoroughly.
Yellow, mushy leaves: over-watered, possible root rot. Stop watering until the soil has dried out. Check if the roots have died.
