Taking care of your poky little plants can be frustrating sometimes. It's tricky to understand how much water they need and what kind of sunlight is best. I’ve done some research and learned the ultimate cactus love language. Hopefully these tips will help keep your plant friends as happy as can be!
*Disclaimer: I am not a plant expert by any means, I’ve just grown (pun-intended) to love them and wanted to share some of the tips that I have learned. If you have any other tips I would love to hear them!*
If you keep your plants inside, then, the closer to the window, the better. However, if the window is facing the sun directly, it potentially could be too bright. If the leaves seem a little bleached, this could be due to an excess amount of sunlight.
I lightly spray my plants with water about three times a week. Once a week, I disperse about a tablespoon of water for each cactus. It REALLY helps the plants if you use cactus soil or add rocks to the very bottom of the planter. That way, the plants can drain the excess water that they don't want.
Overall, these plants are easy to maintain and perfect for people who haven’t fully developed their “green-thumb.” Be sure to admire them regularly to make sure they are adjusting well to your space. They have the potential to grow and last a long time. I hope they bring you joy and inspire you to keep growing too!
