DIY Mini Cactus Gardens

DIY Mini Cactus Gardens for indoors or outdoors. Cactus and succulents are slow growing and great for adding a splash of greenery to small spaces, windowsills, coffee tables, on a desk or bookshelf. Light requirements can vary depending on the species you choose and the climate you live in, but most will thrive in bright indirect light, filtered sun or morning sun. Other species may require full sun. Cactus and succulents thrive in dry conditions, the fastest way to kill a cactus or any other succulent is by over-watering. So better to error on the dry side… When in doubt, skip watering. Going on a trip? Or forgetful when it comes to caring for plants? No worries… Cactus and succulents do just fine with neglect too.

Help! I noticed that the succulent I have was looking funny (it was not as green as when i got it)the bottom was a yellowish washed out colour coming up the leaves which looked like they were closing in on themselves. When i took out the succulent to re-pot it all except one of the roots broke off. Can it be saved? I made my own mix of gravel and the soil my mother uses for her ‘regular’ plants. I re-potted all of them (i have two cactus as well) in this mix and left them in the sun. Did I do the right thing?

I really love how much care and effort you put into all of your videos, especially your plant related ones. There’s so much love for what you do. So many people just churn out videos for views so it’s really nice to see someone with a real passion for what they’re doing.

Gracijela Malisa says:

why not cut off long roots? when it is cut, it becomes firmer and better plant grows.
do the cacti and succulents are not watered a little away from the roots?

Shivali Dave says:

Hi Christine, if I just wanted to make one of these, is it possible to get just a small amount of soil at a garden store? Or do I have to buy a full bag?

kaely cha says:

hi, I have an echeveria plant which I had thought died due to neglect i guess haha. So i pulled the dying ones off and later on baby echeverias start to grow on the stalk. There are no more main leaves and tons of baby echeverias. I’m not really sure what to do as they are getting bigger with no signs of their own roots. 😐

Looks better if you place the polished rocks down first, then add the aquarium gravel.
