Planting and care

For indoor cactus & succulents, recommended pot size is 10inch, it may do well in 6 inch pot as well. Typically an indoor cactus & succulents does not change greatly in size, and you want to avoid excess soil in the pot, which can hold too much water and rot the cactus.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Full to partial sunlight 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. At least 65 degrees C. Implement a low-nitrogen liquid fertilizer every 6 to 8 weeks between spring and early fall.

Caring for Elephant bush

  • They are drought tolerant but do require watering from April to October.
  • In winter the plants are dormant and you may suspend watering.
  • 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
