Cactuses and Succulents

I don’t know much about the names of the varieties of Cactuses and succulents but I do know how to care for them.  They require very bright light indoors,  but during the summer season I don’t suggest placing them in direct sun all day.  In fact they are happier in part shade,  and not to overwater them.   Water them once every 8 days or so during the winter seasons indoors,  and during the summer season about every 2 to 3 days if temperatures are over 75 degrees.  Succulents and Cactuses stores water in their foliage or trunk.  Feed them with cactus food during the growing season.

Bunnies Ears


I think this is related to Jades.



Pin Cushion Cactus



They sure come in different shapes,  sizes,  textures and all are unique.



When it comes to re-potting them always use Cactus soil for it is made just for them.  They add sand to the mixture for fast drainage.



The varieties that blooms usually do when day light is shorter such as Jades.
