Easter Lily Cactus
With over 2000 species and about 140 genera of plants Cactii evolved in the deserts of North and South Americas. Mexico has the greatest number of Cactii species in any country. While these are plants that grow in arid regions, some species, specially Rhipsalis inhabit the tropics of Africa and even Sri Lanka.
Adopting and caring for Easter Lily Cactus
: Adding a healthy Cacti to a plant collection is a feeling only a plant parent can understand. At eplants, we bring you display-ready plants with high-quality growth, compact shape and well-formed specimens. Adopting
: Cacti needs bright light. So set the plants up in a sunny spot in your home or office. While they love the sun, they can also be grown under artificial fluorescent lights like the ones in the office. Locating
: Since a cacti have a tiny root structure, you don’t need to repot the plant every year. Once in 3-4 years is ideal. While repotting, Cacti requires soil that’s pebbly, sandy, porous and one that provides excellent drainage and aeration. The right type of soil will need to dry quickly after you water the plant. A good mix of 30:30:20:20 of coco-peat, coarse sand, compost and perlite is ideal for Cacti Potting
: Cacti have adapted to live with little or no rain for months. So it’s only natural that you don’t overwater these plants. A few drops of water every month is all they need. Overwatering could result in rot setting into the root and eventually, the loss of plant life Watering
: Most Cacti grow slowly, hence require very little in terms of feeding. If you must fertilise, give them some organic liquid fertiliser once or twice a year. Dilute it in water as described on the pack and add little to each pot as part of your watering routine. Fertilising Ancient and rugged, Cacti have no parallel in the natural world. They are as decorative as they are surreal. A beautiful, fragrant white flower can emerge from a grey-green base, and will last less than 24 hours. If you are a plant lover, you could consider adding a few of these hardy, prickly plants to your collection.
