Planting and care

For indoor cactus & succulents, recommended pot size is 10inch, it may do well in 6-inch pot as well.

Use a potting soil mix with a little sand; a cactus & succulents like good drainage. You can mix in a little slow release organic fertilizer. Make sure to pack down the soil around the transplanted plant, and thoroughly water it, to help spur the rooting process in the new soil.

It requires normal watering when the soil is dry in the summer, and very little watering in the winter. You can apply low-nitrogen liquid fertilizer every 6 to 8 weeks between spring and early fall.

Sunlight: Full to partial sunlight
Soil: Coarse sand
Water: Moderately
Temperature: 25 to 35 degrees C.
Fertilizer: Implement a low-nitrogen liquid fertilizer every 6 to 8 weeks between spring and early fall.

  • Elephant bush succulents in the home interior should not have consistently wet feet.
  • Make sure the pot drains well and do not leave a saucer with water sitting under the container
