I really hit the jackpot the other day  at  Walmart.  Not many people know that there are a bunch of houseplants including cactus in the garden center area of the store during the winter months.  There are always new succulents and cactus in that section of the store.  In todays video feature I share how I repot the cactus into a container to enjoy indoors.  Don’t forget to scroll down and see images and more how to grow cactus indoor tips.

Tips on Growing a Cactus Indoors

Over the years I have found that this type of cactus is really one of the easiest to grow indoors.  Although I will admit that my cactus do AMAZING out in the dome greenhouse as well.  Below is a list of my personal growing tips for success when it comes to cactus.

  • Do Not over water.  Cactus love to be dry… think about it… they come from the desert!
  • Use a good potting soil that has the best drainage
  • LEAVE THE PLANT BE…. the cactus do not like to be fussed with.
  • Grow in a bight location but not direct sunlight

As I experiment with different cactus there will be more updates on my website so stay tuned by bookmarking my site.
