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.

Came perfect and packed really well, cant wait to watch it grow!
When I opened up the box it was quite messy, but the most important part is that they were alive! Out of all the cactuses that I ordered, the PowerPuff cactus was the dirtiest, but I cleaned it up with a toothbrush and toothpick and now it is all clean!
This one came covered in dirt and i had to shake it loose. I couldn't get all of it off so it's still on the dirty side. It's pretty, and a good size but covered in dirt.
Arrived in great condition, small but cute.
plants are in awesome condition and very well packaged. they arrived on a very timely manner. I love them.
