How to Love Your Mini Spring Cactus
I am an ideal plant
for travelers! After flowering,
I will go through a dormant period. Water sparingly for a month while I rest. During this stage I can go several weeks without watering!
Keep my soil evenly moist
but never soggy, especially while
I am still growing.
If too dry, my stems will shrivel and wilt. If too wet, the stems will yellow. Try touching the soil: if the soil clings to your fingers, it's still wet. Water when the soil slips off your fingers.
If sitting near a window, East or Northeast-facing directions
I prefer bright indirect light, so be sure to keep me protected from direct sunlight. I will tolerate some direct early morning and late afternoon sun, particularly when in flower.
Be mindful, my care is slightly different than other cacti that originate from arid regions! I am native to the jungles of Brazil and known as “Jungle Cacti”.
Keep me around
20° C (70° F).
Cold temperature will make me vulnerable
Feed me once
a month, but only during
the growing season
(spring and summer).
Use a 10-10-10
Set temperature around 70 °F
during the day and 55-60 °F
last longer when
kept in a cool environment.
