Water the saguaro every 10 to 14 days. The soil should dry out completely before you need to water again. Check the soil to 4 inches deep with your fingers. If you feel even a slight bit of moisture, wait a few days to water. Even though the Saguaro is indoors, you should still follow a seasonal watering schedule. When the nighttime temperatures dip below 60 degrees F, discontinue watering altogether until the nighttime temperatures stay above 60 degrees F.

Grow the banyan tree in an area that is large enough to accommodate its eventual size – up to 100 feet in height with a spread that may take up several acres. As a houseplant, place the banyan tree in an area with partial shade or in bright light. Choose one or the other and then don’t move it or it may end up dropping its leaves.
Water the mature outdoor banyan tree only during prolonged periods of drought. Indoors, let the soil dry out and then place the plant under the faucet, turn it on to a steady drip, and saturate the soil. Another way to ensure that the soil is evenly saturated is to place the pot in a shallow pan of water. Add more water to the pan as the soil absorbs it, until the top of the soil is wet.
Okra is a cultigen (a plant that has been altered by humans through a process of selective breeding). The exact origin of okra is unknown, but it is thought to have come from Africa, where it has been grown as a crop for centuries. Evidence suggests it was grown in Egypt as long ago as 2,000 BC. Today it is widely cultivated for its edible green fruits, which are harvested when immature (after 3-5 days of development), and are infamous for their slimy mucilage.
Agave plants need a spot in full sun to partial shade. The hotter the climate, the more shade they can handle.

Water a newly planted bougainvillea frequently to keep the soil moist. Once the plant is established, it blooms best if the soil is a little on the dry side. Water the plant until liquid drips through the drainage hole, then don’t water again until the potting mixture feels slightly dry. However, don’t allow the soil to become completely dry because a water-stressed plant won’t bloom. Water the plant immediately if it looks wilted.

A saguaro cactus (Carnegiea gigantean) is a columnar cactus that is native to the Sonoran desert in Arizona, California and Mexico. It provides cavity nesting for a variety of birds, and can be used as a food source for humans and wild animals. Because sustained freezing temperatures will quickly kill a saguaro, some gardeners must bring their cacti indoors for the winter. Whether you are growing a saguaro for permanent indoor occupation, or simply saving the cactus from freezing temperatures, the proper care of the cactus is required to help it stay healthy and thriving.
Take your containerized cactus indoors when the nighttime temperature starts to dip below 60 degrees F.
