It’s Summer time, and while we may not be traveling, let’s make the most of it with our plants.
It is deep Summer and your plant’s (and you) might need more water!
REASONS TO INCREASE WATER
As the days get longer and hotter, plants will receive more sun and water will evaporate easier. Plants are ready for a time of growth so increasing watering can help them thrive.
We suggest moistening houseplant soil evenly, once per week. Make sure to watch for signs of overwatering (yellow leaves) and signs of thirst (limpness). All of our houseplants are super hardy so a little over or under watering will not be a problem, just be careful not to overcompensate.
CACTI + SUCCULENTS
While we suggest holding off on watering in the winter months, during warmer months you only have to increase watering to once a month:
- Extra Large Planter (e.g. Lulo Cactus): 1 cup water
- Large Planter (e.g. Lorenzo): 2 TBS water
- Medium Planter: (e.g. Gilbert) 1 TBS of water
- Small Planter (e.g. Olive Cactus): 1-2 tsp water
- Mini Planter (e.g. Lino): 1/4 tsp water from wet hand or dropper
Micro minis are extra small and can only fit a few drops of water into their planters. We recommend watering them twice a month during warm months.
- Micro Mini: 3 drops from wet hand or dropper every two weeks.
General Summer Watering Tips:
Our absorbent planters and soil are designed to hold the exact amount of water each plant needs and to expel any extra water. You can find these planters, soils, and hardy plants we grow here:
Fun Fact: Cacti and succulents are flowering plants so that means every kind is capable of blooming!
Whether you are wondering why your cactus is not blooming or you may have seen your plant bloom and want it to keep happening, we have some ways to help.
Contrary to popular belief, cacti do not need to be old to bloom. As you can see from our Instagram, where we post photos of our cacti in bloom, even the tiny baby cacti and succulents that we grow bloom frequently.
Here is how you can help your cacti and succulents bloom:
In their natural environment, cacti and succulents are used to intense sunlight and little water in winter and then they bloom in Spring and Summer so let’s work on recreating that environment in these 4 steps:
It is important to know that not all indoor cacti bloom. Our small paddled cacti have never been seen blooming. Cacti like Olivia and Ferdinand are opuntias and they tend to bloom when the paddles are very large and they are planted in the desert.
PLANT KILLER HACK: Find cacti and succulents that are known to be frequent bloomers! All of the frequent bloomers in our shop are photographed in bloom so you can easily find them!
Here are some of our frequently blooming cacti from the shop!
Once your cactus has bloomed, it is normal for it to flower from 24 hours to 2 weeks depending on the plant. When the bloom starts to wither, no worries, just gently remove it and get ready for it’s next bloom!
