All indoor plants need care. Some colors need more attention, some less. The expression of unenlightened people that cacti grow by themselves irritates experienced gardeners. The unpretentiousness of cacti is just a stereotype that dissipates with the appearance of this plant in the house.
Cacti need to be looked after
Precisely because it is not customary to care for cacti, people are sincerely surprised when they learn that cacti can bloom. People are even more amazed that absolutely all cacti are capable of blooming, regardless of varieties. For those who start a plant just because it grows by itself, the cactus can live on the windowsill for years, but never bloom.
Green and thorny, sometimes nondescript plants begin to bloom from time to time. And the beauty of cactus flowers could be the envy of many indoor plants. There is nothing super complicated in keeping a plant. The cactus is really one of the most capricious house plants.
Cacti do not protect against computer radiation
There is another stereotype about a poor prickly flower, which is believed by both elderly people and their children. Cacti do not protect people from computer radiation. They put the poor plant in the corner of the table, forget about it, and after a while they stumble upon a cactus that is half-alive or without any signs of life and throw it away.
This is very cruel and unfair, since the cactus does not die from radiation at all. They just forgot about him, he didn't have enough light or air. If the computer emits something, then it harms the plant as well as the owner. But the cactus is not to blame for anything. Whoever uses a computer should be irradiated.
Proper lighting and watering are important for cacti
Good lighting is essential for succulent species such as echinopsis, rebutia, and hymnocalycium. Forest cacti, such as Decembrist and Ripsalis, do not need bright lighting. Mammillaria will feel good on the windowsills.
Water the cactus properly. In the summer, he needs regular watering, like other houseplants. When the soil dries out, then you need to water. But in the winter, a monthly watering is enough for a cactus. In winter, the cactus is dormant, like most plants.
The heating battery is not like "hot countries"
Another florist's mistake makes cacti suffer. The homeland of succulents is not at all hot deserts. They do not need to be moved to the battery during cold weather. The batteries are fully heated in winter, and this is a real hell for any plants standing nearby.
Cacti require not so much attention as just a normal attitude towards him as a plant. It is not a radiation protector, nor is it a thorn growing by itself. It is a lively, flowering, charming plant.
Watering errors are the most common cause of indoor plant problems. Fearing drought, trying to give your plants the best care, it's so easy to overdo it
