Cactus and Succulent Care Tips

Cactus and Succulent Care Tips

  • Cactus and succulents require completely different growing conditions. They store moisture in the fleshy part of their body or leaves so they do not require misting.
  • Watering is only necessary about once every 3-4 weeks.
  • Cactus and Succulents like to grow in sunny southwest windows and rarely need transplanting due to a tiny root system. If they do require transplanting, go to a container 2.5 cm (1″) bigger and use cactus soil which has a high proportion of sand for quick drainage.
  • To coax a cactus to bloom in the spring and summer and to keep it in top health use Schultz Cactus Plus 2-7-7 diluted with water as directed.
  • Cactus and succulents like the Jade plant require the least amount of water. Water them very little and they will live for years.
