Spring Cactus,Rhipsalidopsis gaertneri
PLANT CARE GUIDE
The Spring Cactus needs bright, indirect sunlight for the majority of the day. She'll grow best in partial to full sunlight with a minimum of 4-6 hours of bright sunlight per day. She especially enjoys full afternoon sunlight.
Water your Spring Cactus when the soil is dry to the touch. Remove the plant from its decorative planter and water with fresh water. Water generously and evenly from above, so the soil is thoroughly drenched. Then allow the water to drain completely from the soil before returning the plant to its decorative planter.
This cactus will do well in warmer temperatures (between 65° - 85ºF). Cold temperatures or rooms with strong vents or drafts should be avoided.
This cactus will do well in lower levels of humidity, around 30-35%.
The succulent can live happily in the provided pot for up to a year. Repot when the roots have become overgrown, or the plant has grown too large. Mix equal parts sand and potting soil or use a succulent potting mix. Keep the soil loose rather than tightly compacted. After repotting, wait at least a week before watering the plant. Repot every 1-2 years. When your plant is ready to be repotted, you can follow our simple how-to guide.
