How to take care of Opuntia vulgaris

Cactus Plants originate in areas of the USA and Mexico and are accustomed at dryness. Place the Opuntia vulgaris on a light spot in the window and keep them at approx,16-18°C during the winter.

During spring and summer they can withstand a room temperature of about 20-25 degrees. Opuntia vulgaris need direct sunlight and moderate watering during their growing season. Water once every month, from late February onwards (add a little bit of some liquid fertiliser) to boost them.

The flowering varieties of cactus plants will flower in spring.

ATTENTION: Opuntia vulgaris do not like wet feet, so take care of good drainage as wet feet can lead to root rot! If and when you transplant, add broken pot shards or pebbles at the bottom of the pot to ensure extra drainage.
