INDOORS: This plant is comfortable in well lit indoor areas - preferably close to a window (preferably 2-3+ hours of direct sun on a sunny day)
NB: The most affordable and efficient way to measure if it is time to water your cacti is by using a water meter. When the meter reads “DRY” its time to water again. Remember, over watering Cacti is the main cause of death.Head to our online store to buy your water meter today!
