Plant Care Tips for Succulent and Cactus Lovers

Succulent and Cacti Care

Lighting Proper Sunlight

Many succulents and cacti like the sun. However, many do burn when in the direct sun. It is best to keep your succulents and cacti in filtered sun, directly in front of a window, on a porch or a patio in the morning and evening.

If your succulent is getting lengthy or there is a lot of space between the leaves,there is not enough sun. Or if the bottom leaves are falling off without them drying up, most likely there is not enough sun. When the surface of your succulents and cacti has brown discoloration, they are getting too much sun.

Water

It is always better to underwater your succulents and cactus rather than overwater them. It is best to water when the soil is completely dry. You can use a moisture meter to check if your plants are dry or simply touch the soil. Typically, you should be watering your plants 1 to 2 times a week on warm weather and 2 to 3 times a month on cold weather.

Tillandsias Care

Lighting

Tillandsias do best in filtered light. They should not be left in direct sun or Tillandsias will burn. They are better indoors, in a room with a good amount of sun, or outside in partial shade.

Water

Thoroughly wet your tillandsia by running it under the sink,misting it two to three times a week, or soak it in a bowl of water once a week. Every environment is different. Your tillandsia may need to be watered every day if it is in a warm and dry place. Water less often when it is humid. Make sure your tillandsia is getting air circulation. For example, do not place it inside a container with a lid.

Succulent Pumpkin Care

Protect your succulent pumpkin from direct sun, freezing temperature, and rain. Gently spray the plants once a week. Give the arrangement with indirect sunlight by setting it near the window, indoors, or on a sheltered deck or balcony. When the pumpkin is rooted, the succulents can be transplanting. Gently pull or cut each succulent off the pumpkin and place it into the soil.
