Currently bang on trend with their own Instagram following, you can't escape the images of cacti which are everywhere! With our collection of 6 tried and tested plants, this is your opportunity to join in with the cactus revolution.
Cacti have evolved for arid living - they are used to very little water, hot days and chilly nights so are perfectly adapted to modern home living! Needing very little in the way of care, cacti are the ideal houseplant for everyone from beginners to experts.
Happy in a sandy compost, with plenty of light and a little water now and again, your cactus collection will thrive. Built to conserve moisture, they'll tolerate being dry and will explode into growth when watered correctly (just don't overwater them - they hate it and will curl up their toes).
If you want to do less and get more out of your plants, then these cacti are your go-to plants! Slow-growing, they are the perfect living sculpture for home decoration, and will grow and age with you.
There's a cactus for everyone, with spines, without spines, with flowers, tall, squat, round, ribbed, lobed and trailing - truly a plant of many forms. They're ideal to get kids interested in gardening with their alien shapes, all you need is a little care with the spiny ones, but then you can always pick one of the spineless or furry ones!
Supplied as a collection of 6 mixed plants* in 5.5cm pots, ready to go on a windowsill near you now!
*Plants may vary depending on availability.
Remember that cacti are prickly beggars - always wear protective clothing when handling.
