Cacti & Succulents

These type of plants have the ability to store water within their leaves/stems, this allows them to survive in dry habitats.  They can make a wonderful and quirky addition to your home, and are relatively easy to care for. 

* TOP TIPS!

COMPOST

Ideally should be open and free-draining to avoid excess water being stored.

Cactus compost is recommended, you can buy some here in our shop.

WATER

Be careful not to over water. 

Every plant is different, we advise you to research what your specific one needs. 

AIR

During summer, they would benefit from fresh air and should be kept in a well-ventilated area. 

Air Plants

Botanical Name : Tillandsia

Air plants do not need to be watered much, they have specialised leaves which are used to obtain all the water and nutrients which they need to survive from the air. Their roots function to attach onto rocks or grit, and with little maintenance needed, they should live a long life if cared for. 

* TOP TIPS!

LIGHT

Avoid direct contact with sunlight, especially if through glass.

AIR

Keep the area well-ventilated.​

WATER

Plants should be immersed in rainwater 2-3 times a week during Spring - Autumn. Its very important that the plants are able to dry off, so dont do this when the temperatures are low. 

WARMTH

Ideally kept between 12-30 degrees celsius.
