Cacti are great plants for busy people who want something to sit on a sunny windowsill, but don’t want to spend too much time looking after them.This beautifully rounded, glossy green cactus has distinct deep ribs running down the plant, with clutches of golden yellow radial spines protruding out. Native to Mexico this cactus in it’s natural habitat can grow to a large plant with funnel shaped yellow flowers from mid-summer but over here it is unlikely to flower, and really it is an attactive plant just as it is. Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a black plastic pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

Rhipsalis does not thrive in direct sunlight. Exposure to afternoon sun can burn the leaves, turn them yellow, or lead to spotting. However, without sufficient sunlight, They will not bloom, and its growth can be stunted. Rhipsalis does best with morning sun and full shade in the afternoon. As Rhipsalis is commonly grown indoors, care must be given to the placement of the plants. They should be kept at least 20 inches (50 cm) away from windows that receive midday or afternoon sun. The glass in the windows can multiply the heat from the sun’s rays, causing sunburned leaves. Keep in mind that in its native environment, Rhipsalis is accustomed to receiving light that has been filtered through dense, overhanging tree branches. Picturing this environment can help you adjust your lighting accordingly.
Rhipsalis is not a drought-resistant plant, so regular watering is essential. Over-watering, however, can cause weak stems and rotted roots. Using a watering can may help you measure the amount of water you are providing. The size of the pot compared to the size of the plant, the humidity levels in the home, and the type of potting soil used can all affect the watering frequency. Rhipsalis seldom needs to be watered more than once a week. Check before watering by pressing your finger into the soil to a depth of half an inch. Postpone watering if the soil is moist. You can also use a moisture meter to help you determine whether it is time to water.
A Dracaena compacta plant grows best in medium light. In low light area they grow very slowly or not at all, tend to lose bottom leaves, and are easily over-watered. Rotate dracaenas weekly so that they don’t grow toward the light, become one sided, and lose their beautiful shape..
Like other indoor houseplants, a Dracaena compacta uses less water in low light than in brighter light. Keep the plant on the dry side to prevent root rot and Leaf Spot Disease. Allow the top ¾ of the soil to dry out before watering. In low light this could be two weeks or more. Compacta plants do better when watered on a regular schedule. Brown tips usually indicate too much too much chlorine or fluorine in the water. Muddy brown leaf tips on new growth means the plant needs more water.
Dracaena Compacta plants like warm room temperatures (60-75°F/16-24°C). Cold winter drafts and heaters can damage the leaves.
Light: Bright but filtered or diffused sunlight is sufficient to ensure healthy growth of this plant (near bright east or south window).
Water: Water regularly and thoroughly because infrequent watering can cause leaves of your dieffenbachia to become brown and unattractive.
Water, then allow the soil to drain and empty excess water. This is necessary to prevent root rot.
A well-draining potting mixture should be used. Let the soil dry out to about an inch down before you water again. Drooping yellow leaves may be a sign of overwatering.
Temperature: The ideal temperature range for growing a Tropic Snow Dumb Cane is 70 to 80 degree.
Fahrenheit during the day, and 60 to 65 degree at night. Plant can tolerate 50 degrees Fahrenheit without damage but avoid cold drafts. If plants becomes too cold, the leaves will turn yellow and droop.
watering, once a week, depending on the season. On hot summer days they might need a bit more water than on colder days. What’s important is to not keep the soil wet, but let it dry out a bit in between waterings, but also don’t let it dry out completely, either. The plants in terracotta pots might need watering more often because the terracotta absorbs part of the water.
All my Pileas love a spot in front of a window where they get a lot of light, but almost no direct sunlight. This is where they grow best. In a spot where there’s more shade, they will do fine too, but the leaves might turn a darker green. Too much direct sunlight might scorch the leaves. I do rotate my plants a few times a week because the leaves grow in the direction o
To thrive in our homes, anthuriums need medium to bright indirect light, although they’ll accept less during their dormant period in winter. They are sensitive to direct light and burn easily, so take care to protect from hot afternoon sunbeams.
Proper watering is key to Anthurium care (and to the care of all your houseplants!). Keep the soil lightly moist during the growing season (March-September), letting the top layer just approach dryness between waterings. Make a habit of checking on it at least once or twice a week by gently digging a finger into the soil. It should feel barely moist. If it still feels wet, wait a bit longer.
Proper Anthurium care means keeping a watchful eye in winter and protecting your plants from drafty doors and windows. They will suffer or even die below 55 degrees and are happiest between 65-70. It’s also important to protect your Anthurium from forced air. Heaters, fans, and air conditioners can damage plants if they are too close, but gentle air circulation (such as an open window on a warm, humid day) will benefit them.
