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.
Your cactus only needs to be watered once every 2 to 3 weeks, allowing its soil to completely dry out between waterings to prevent overwatering and root rot. During the winter months feel free to only water once monthly.
Cacti do not have any particular humidity requirements - but are not suited to very humid environments like bathrooms or terrariums.
Your cactus does not have any particular temperature requirements, but will suffer if subjected to temperatures below 10ºC.
You do not need to feed your cactus.
Cacti are non-toxic to people and pets - but be careful of their spines.
Additional Care Information:
We recommend handling your cacti gently with gloves or a towel when you repot it to prevent being pricked.
- Wrinkled stem or leaves: indicates your cactus is underwatered - allow it to dry out between waterings but water it thoroughly and deeply when you do.
- Yellowing, mushy leaves: suggest your plant is overwatered and may be suffering from root rot. Stop watering your cactus until its soil has completely dry out before watering again. You may want to check if the roots of your cactus have completely died.
