Tips to maintain cactus at home

Proper Lighting

Sunlight: Ensure your cactus gets plenty of sunlight, ideally 4-6 hours a day. Place it near a south-facing window for the best results.


Infrequent Watering: Water your cactus sparingly. Let the soil dry out completely between watering sessions.

Soil and Potting

Well-Draining Soil: Use a cactus or succulent-specific soil mix that ensures good drainage.

Temperature and Humidity

Warm Environment: Cacti thrive in warm temperatures. Keep them in a room with a temperature range between 60-80°F (15-27°C).


Occasional Feeding: During the growing season, feed your cactus with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength once a month. Avoid fertilizing during the dormant season.

Pruning and Maintenance

Remove Dead Parts: Trim off any dead or decaying parts of the cactus with clean, sharp scissors.


Repot When Necessary: Repot your cactus every 2-3 years or when it outgrows its pot. Handle the cactus carefully to avoid damage.

Air Circulation

Good Ventilation: Ensure your cactus gets good air circulation to prevent mold and mildew.
