A cactus is a plant that can be found in the desert. They are tough plants and require very little water to survive, which makes them perfect for dessert climates with low rainfall. These plants grow in many different shapes and sizes, so there’s one out there for everyone.
Cacti come in all sorts of shapes- round balls, tall columns, short stubby ones- but they all have some things in common: spines on their skin and pads instead of leaves. Cacti also make great houseplants because they don’t need much water or sunlight to thrive! In this workshop, you will learn everything you need to know about these wonderful plants.
Cacti, like their cousins the succulents, are often watered once a month. They need to be watered thoroughly so that the potting soil becomes wet and drains out the excess water. This is called deep watering. Cacti and succulents need indirect light and should not be placed in direct sunlight as too much heat will cook them. It is also not recommended that they grow next to a heating or cooling vent or large window where direct sunlight can reach them at various times of the day.”
“Cacti and succulents like to be planted with their roots hanging out the pot’s drainage hole. When you water them, do not water them until the soil dries out completely. Always ensure that there is no standing water in the bottom of the pot after watering otherwise, the plant will rot. Cacti and succulents like to be in a well-drained planting mix. A good example of well-draining potting soil is found here.
Some cacti and succulents need more water than others, there are two main types: desert cacti which get 10cm/2″ of rain per year, and tropical cacti which get 60cm/24″ of rain per year. Each cactus or succulent has a minimum and maximum temperature requirement, it’s best to do your research on the type of cactus you want to buy. There are some cute ones like these here (link broken), and I particularly like this lookout.”
Cactus plants require a little more care than most other houseplants. To keep them healthy, you’ll need a well-lit room and to water them infrequently.
Anyone who lives in an apartment, condo, or office space knows the challenge of wanting to bring life and beauty into their home without having too much greenery cluttering up limited space. It’s a good idea to adopt some indoor plants, as they purify the air around us and provide a little bit of calmness and green to dull surroundings.
Cactus plants are one of the easiest houseplants to have around, so what better way to add a bit of life to your home or office than with this cactus terrarium workshop? You’ll learn how to create a desert habitat for these beautiful plants and even learn some tips on how you can keep them thriving and happy.
There are so many benefits to having a green thumb at home or work. Here are just a few of them:
Whether it’s your first time trying to grow something or you’re an old pro, the workshop will offer you some easy tips to get started.
First things first, when you choose to bring home a cactus plant, ensure that the pot is nice and big. Since they have shallow root systems, this will allow them to grow without being too cramped in their new home. Pick a pretty planter to match your office or home décor.
You will need a medium-sized pot, pebbles, a tray to catch the excess water, a drainage screen, and a little cactus mix. Potting soil can be used instead of the cactus mix but it’s important that the container has good drainage holes at the bottom. If there are no holes, drill a few into the bottom of your pot.
It’s best to move your new cactus onto a tray to catch the excess water that will drain from its base. This is important, otherwise, you’ll end up with a soggy mess which can cause rot and root damage.
Once you have all the materials needed for planting, make a layer of pebbles covering the bottom of the pot. This will help to keep the plant healthy and will prevent soil or rocks from getting into its root cavity or damaging its stem.
In conclusion, When you think about a cactus, do you picture something small and prickly? Cacti are surprisingly diverse plants. Some grow thick with spines while others have soft bristles or needles. There is a perfect type of cactus for everyone! Whether you’re looking to add some green to your workplace or home decor, we can help find the most appropriate fit for your needs.
