Plant Cacti

When handling cacti, we found that two pairs of gloves did the trick in preventing needles from piercing our fingers. Put on neoprene-coated work gloves, then put on thick leather work gloves over the neoprene ones. Carefully place cacti atop the pea gravel in whatever formation you’d like. Be sure that the bases of the cacti are ½ inch lower than the lip of the dish.

Fill in Cactus SoilTo ensure that all of your plants are at the same height level in the dish, Ьгeаk up roots as needed. Use a scoop or large spoon to fill in the dish with cactus soil.

Top Off With Decorative Rocks

For a final toᴜсһ, add a top layer of decorative rocks or sand. Place your cactus garden in an area with full sun. Although cacti are rugged plants, they don’t like temperature extremes. So keep them far from any heating or air conditioning units. Water your cactus garden sparingly, as cacti appreciate dry conditions.
