Caring for Cacti and Succulents
Do not be concerned about caring for succulents or cacti, as they are some of the most durable and hardy plants you could own. Anyone can grow and care for cacti as they require almost no maintenance. Once you get your cacti or succulents home, the only real concern is how large the container is. At some point, you may need to consider repotting your plants into a larger container so that they have access to more nutrients. As far as watering your cacti and succulents, most varieties will only require additional water once per month or longer. Simply add a small amount of water to moisten the soil.
Another benefit that comes with owning cacti and succulents is that you do not have to worry about trimming or pruning your plants. Also, when deciding where to place your cacti and succulents, keep in mind that most species need some shade, so avoid direct sunlight.
Cacti and succulents truly are an almost zero maintenance option, or at least as close as you can get to a maintenance free plant. Remembering to water your plants once per month is hardly a chore. No green thumb is needed, just remember to keep the soil moist every month or so and move your plants to a larger pot or container when the time comes.
Small to medium cacti arrangements make for great tabletop plants. They do not require constant sunlight and having a variety of succulents and cacti grouped together in one container offers more variety, shapes, and colors to enjoy. Take this Medium Cactus Garden, as an example. It includes 7 different species of cacti and succulents inside a 7-inch container. For something a little smaller, consider purchasing this Small Cactus Garden, with 6 varieties in a 6-inch container.
