SUCCULENTS & CACTUS
A popular sun-loving plant for every home
CARING FOR YOUR SUCCULENTS & CACTUS
Succulents and cactus come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. With all these varieties, they have one thing in common—they love a lot of light. Placing them in the sunniest spot in your home is best. Water them when dried out, and you’ll have a happy plant. Their ease of maintenance is due to their love of hot and dry climates.
Cactus and succulents thrive in bright direct light but have some ability to handle bright indirect light. Place in a bright sunny window and watch them grow!
Depending on the size of the cactus or succulent, watering every 2-3 weeks, allowing the soil to dry completely between watering is ideal. When watering, be sure to soak them until water drains out of the pot.
The optimum temperature range for cactus and succulents is 65-90° F. It’s best not to let it go below 60° F.
Cactus and succulents love humidity, so really any level of humidity is perfect!
IS IT PET FRIENDLY?
On most occasions, cactus and succulents are not toxic to cats and dogs. Some cacti do, however, have spiky needles, which can cause harm.
