There are 3 essential things you need to know in regards to growing cacti indoors.
You need: high light, a soil mix which is well aerated and drains well, and to go easy on the frequency of watering. You can travel for 3-4 weeks and not have to worry about who’s going to water your cactus garden. A few other big pluses: no pruning required, no yellow leaves to remove, repotting is rarely needed because they grow so slow indoors and little if any feeding is necessary. They practically take care of themselves!
Fleshy succulents are wonderful and I grew many of them in my Santa Barbara garden. I now live in Tucson which is the land of cacti so I figured why not go with it. I’ve come to appreciate the many of these wacky plants growing here in the Sonoran Desert. Although I love all of my leafy houseplants, I wanted to make a couple of miniature cactus gardens for my home. Sharing the spiny love!
