Cacti can grow indoors and outdoors as long as they are getting enough sunlight. Cacti thrive in bright light to full sunlight!

Pet Friendly

   Common Problems Q&A

Why are my leaves shriveling up and wrinkling?

Although Cacti do not need much water they still need some water. So don't forget to water your plant soon after the soil has completely dried out.

Why are there grey scab-like marks on my plant?

Although this may look worrisome, its most likely nothing to be afraid of! You may have noticed some scabbing on produce like tomatoes & cucumbers. Make sure you are not overwatering your plant and keep it away from any drafts, especially in the winter.
