How to Grow a Cactus
In the Spring, Summer, and Fall, Your Cactus Will Grow
- Keep your cactus warm in the sun.
- Water when your cactus gets wrinkly—that means it’s thirsty!
- Add plant food every 3 weeks.
In the Winter
In the Winter, Your Cactus Will Take a Nap
- Don’t water too much—only if you see wrinkles!
- It’s time to sleep, not eat! No more plant food until the springtime.
- Move your cactus to a cool spot, but don’t let it freeze.
