  • Method: Water deeply, allowing excess water to drain out. Do not let the cacti sit in water.

Soil

  • Type: Well-draining cactus or succulent mix.

Humidity

  • Preference: Low humidity.
  • Tip: Ensure good air circulation to prevent rot.

Fertilising

  • Frequency: Once a month during the growing season (spring and summer).
  • Type: Use a balanced, water-soluble cactus fertiliser diluted to half strength.

Repotting

  • Frequency: Every 2-3 years or when the cactus outgrows its pot.
  • Procedure: Choose a pot slightly larger than the current one with drainage holes. Handle the cactus with care, using gloves or tongs to avoid spines.

Pests and Diseases

  • Common Pests: Watch for mealybugs, spider mites, and scale insects.
  • Prevention: Inspect regularly and treat with insecticidal soap if needed.

Additional Tips

Tropical Glasshouse Nursery: Our plants are nurtured in our tropical glasshouse nursery located in Lincolnshire, where we maintain an average temperature of 16°C. We do not use cold warehouses, ensuring optimal conditions for plant health.

Plastic Nursery Pots: All our plants are supplied in practical plastic nursery pots. If you prefer a more decorative option, we offer a range of stylish pots available for purchase separately.

Non-Consumable: Please note that our plants are intended for ornamental purposes only unless specifically stated as edible. Ensure you check product descriptions carefully if you are looking for edible varieties.

Variable Heights: The height of our plants can vary by approximately +/- 10%. This natural fluctuation ensures you receive a unique and healthy specimen.

Plant Pot Sizes: Pot sizes may vary by approximately +/- 1cm. To ensure a proper fit, we recommend selecting a decorative pot that is 1-2cm larger than the stated plant pot size. For instance, if you purchase a plant in a 17cm pot, a 18 - 19cm decorative pot would be ideal.

Quarantining: All our houseplants are regularly sprayed with a preventative systemic bug treatment. We do our best to ensure a bug free growing environment however sometimes these can unfortunately be missed, as such we always recommend quarantining plants when they first enter your home and checking them upon arrival for bugs.
