Water & dropper usage:
How much water does my plant need, approximately?
How do I use the dropper?
Get a small cup of water with the suggested amount, fill the dropper by squeezing it and water around the plants directly on the stones, avoid putting water directly on the plants/leaves to protect them from rotting.
Common problems of Cacti:
Problem: Stretching out to one side for light
Cause: Placed in the wrong place.
Solution: Move it to an area that receives light.
Problem: Leaves look bloated, buffy and soggy
Solution: Let the plant dry out under a good amount of sun. Rewater like normal using our water dropper.
Problem: Trouble standing up, soft, smells and no new growth.
Cause: Roots are rotting
Solution:Unpot and cut the rotten roots. Leave the roots to dry out for a day or two and repot them in fresh compost and place under the sun and add the amount of water recommended.
