Description

DETAILS_
Cement planters are 10cm h x 10.5cm w using a quality compost-perlite-sand mix that is top dressed with small river pebbles.

CARE_
Cacti prefer to completely dry out between waterings. Water the soil deeply so that water runs through the drainage hole and hits the roots for uptake to stem. Sunny to partial shade position outdoors, indoors in a very sunny position otherwise will lose their nice shape and become more open in growth. Cacti are generally winter dormant so keep dry and warm in winter either inside in a bright, warm spot or sheltered outdoors and water sparingly, if at all, outdoors over winter. Lightly fertilizer (1/4 to 1/2 strength of normal plants) during the spring-summer growing season for best results.
