Mammillaria Elegans Cactus Water & Light Recommendations

Watering Needs Indoors: Instead of giving your succulents gradual sips of water throughout the week, give them a good soaking, to the point where water runs out the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot. Be sure to empty the water that runs into the saucer, succulents do not like to sit in water. Then let the soil dry out completely before watering again.

Watering Needs Outdoors: In the Summer water your succulents every two weeks, by soaking them and letting them dry before watering again. In the Winter water your succulents once a month.

I love this, can't wait for it to bloom. I'm thinking about putting it into a desert fairy garden. It came promptly and very well packaged. I love Sauccycrafts💞
