It's simple, lazy gardens don't require too much attention. These are resilient plants that thrive on neglect. Part of what makes succulents and cacti so fascinating is the countless ways they express themselves depending on light, season, temperature, soil, and water. Follow these tips to keep your garden happy and healthy!


Succulents and Cacti need to be watered very little. You should allow the soil to dry out completely then wait another day or two before watering. It is important not to over-water your plants. Typically we recommend watering every 1-2 weeks for indoor plants, but always check the soil first!


Give cacti and succulents the brightest light or sunniest window that you can provide. For best results try to give your plants 4-6 hours of sunlight. Indirect sunlight is best!


The ideal temperature for your succulent or cactus is between 60-80°F


Keep your plants clean and healthy by removing dead or dry leaves often.
