The Cactus - Small but Mighty
These cacti make a fantastic gift. They may be small, but they will make a grand impression wherever you place them!
Where does it come from?
The cactus plant is native to the Americas, where it grows in dry, arid environments. However, some species of cactus also grow in Africa and Srilanka!
Plant Care Tips: Cacti
Light: Cacti prefer bright, indirect light. You should avoid placing them in direct sunlight as this can cause them to fade and turn yellow.
Water: These plants may be tolerant to drought, but they still need a regular watering routine to stay alive! Water your cacti when the soil feels dry, which should be every week or so. Water less frequently during the winter months.
Humidity: In their natural habitat, cacti grow in hot, arid conditions. Try to keep them out of rooms with high humidity, such as the kitchen or the bathroom.
Temperature: Your cacti will thrive in temperatures between 15-30°C. Try not to subject them to temperatures below 10°C. Keep away from cold draughts.
Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix.
Fertilizer: We recommend using a special cactus fertilizer once or twice a month during the growing season (spring and summer.)
Propagation: You can propagate your cactus through stem cuttings or offsets, depending on the type.
Pets: Cacti are non-toxic but are very spiky, so keep away from pets and children!
Cacti - Common Issues and Questions
My cactus looks dry and shrivelled. What am I doing wrong?
It is a common misconception that cacti do not need frequent watering because they are desert plants. If underwatered, your cactus will start to shrivel and grow very slowly. You should water your cactus whenever the soil feels dry, which will be around every week or so. However, it is also possible to overwater your cactus, so make sure that you observe the care instructions carefully!
How often should I repot my cacti?
We strongly recommend that you repot your cactus during the growing season (spring to summer). If you repot it during the winter months (between October and February) there is a very strong chance that it will die, and nobody wants that!
Common pests: Cacti are most vulnerable to mealybugs. However, they can also be attacked by other pests such as scale, aphids, and spider mites. Treat any infestations you find with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
