Cactus Care Guide: Hardy Beauties for Minimalists

Cacti are known for their resilience and unique appearance, making them popular choices for plant enthusiasts. Here’s an in-depth care guide for cacti:

Light: Cacti thrive in direct sunlight. Place them in a location where they can receive several hours of direct sunlight each day, such as a south or west-facing window.

Watering: Cacti are desert plants, so they prefer infrequent and deep watering. Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings, especially during the dormant winter months.

Pot Choice: To prevent waterlogged roots, use pots with excellent drainage. Well-draining cactus or succulent soil is essential for their well-being.

Soil: A cactus mix containing sand and perlite provides excellent drainage and replicates their natural habitat.

Temperature: Most cacti prefer warm temperatures and can handle cool nights. Avoid exposing them to temperatures below 50°F (10°C) for extended periods.

Fertilization: Cacti have low nutritional requirements. Apply a diluted, balanced fertilizer during the growing season (spring and summer).
