Miniature Desert Rose 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.

Prickly little rose...

I was surprised at how well this one traveled. It's very pretty and easy to transplant into a larger pot using gardening gloves.

Lovely cactus

I am so happy that I ordered this cactus. It looks just like the photo. Can't wait to see it bloom! Great wrapping and care for traveling as well.

Magnificent plant

I received a quite large plant, different than any cactus I had ever seen. It’s densely packed with small cactus tubes, in a mound. Attractive. Should bloom with hot pink blossoms all over.

True beauty

This arrived looking just like the picture. Must say it is one of my favorites.
