Meet Succulent, Cacti and Aloe

Succulents, Cacti, and Aloe Plants are some of the easiest plants to care. They are adaptive and can survive many conditions. As a result, these are ideal houseplants.

Light

Succulents, Cacti and Aloe can grow indoors and outdoors as long as they are getting enough sunlight. If growing indoors, place the plant near a sunny window. South facing windows will provide the best sunlight. Not all succulents will bloom but those who do will usually bloom once or twice a year.

Pet Friendly

Succulent-Yes, most are pet safe.

Cactus-Yes, but their sharp spines are hazardous to pets.

Aloe-No

Water

The rule of thumb is to water Succulent, Cacti and Aloe plants when the soil is dry. Do not water if the soil is still moist or wet. Determine how long it takes for the soil to dry completely and you can start a watering schedule. They do best in soil that doesn't hold water. If your soil does not drain well, add some sand or gravel to increase drainage.

   Common Problems Q&A

 Why are my leaves wilted, wrinkled and crispy?

This is likely a sign of under watering. Although Succulents, Cacti and Aloe plants do not need much water they still cannot be completely neglected. You should water you plant soon after the soil has completely dried out. 

Why are my leaves turning yellow, transparent and soggy?

This is generally a sign of over watering. You should cut back on your watering schedule and only water when your soil has dried out. If you were watering once a week and notice these signs, try cutting back and watering once every 2 weeks. 

Why is my plant experiencing leggy growth?

Leggy growth is likely a sign of inadequate light. When succulents aren't receiving enough light they stretch in order to get closer to sunlight. Try moving your plant to a sunny window.

It is the result of grafting two different species of cactus together in a nursery in Japan. The top part, the scion, can't live on its own due to its lack of chlorophyll, so caring for this succulent requires consideration of both the rootstock and the scion. Intolerant to bright sunlight and colder temperatures, place in shaded spots. If the rootstock begins growing another branch, immediately prune it, as the scion will lose nutrients.
