1 Notes

I have 27 indoor baby cacti and succulents, all of which have been purchased from different places . I have no idea when the last time any of them have been watered . I heard to water them when the soil is completely dry. Is this true during winter time indoors?

As long as all of them are (1) desert cacti and (2) have good drainage, then it would be sufficient to water once a month in winter or when the soil is completely dry to the touch. Be sure to dig down a little with your finger to make sure.

As the temperatures increase, you can begin to water more frequently. Again, check below the surface.

If any of the cacti are tropical, such as Rhipsalis or Schlumbergera, you will want to water more frequently, never letting the soil reach a bone dry state.
