Toxicity

Some cacti are toxic and some are not. We are not able to ensure that all plants received in an assortment will be pet safe, so we recommend keeping your cacti in a safe place away from your pets, and consult your veterinarian if you believe your pet has ingested a plant. Cacti also have thorns that may injure a pet, though may also serve as an effective deterrent!

Care tips

Cacti and succulents prefer loose, well-draining soil, and to be allowed to dry out completely between watering. Watering too much or staying wet for too long can quickly lead to rot and kill the plant. When in doubt, always err on the side of less water rather than more. Remember,  these plants have evolved to survive extreme dry conditions in nature!

Common issues

Why is my cactus wrinkled and shriveled looking?

Confusingly, cacti and succulents can develop sad wrinkled leaves when they are under OR over waterered. If you bear in mind it is better to under water than to over water and are careful to give water only once every 3-4 weeks (or longer in Winter), shriveled and wrinkly leaves are a sure sign that your cactus is ready for a drink. If the leaves are wrinkled and also feel soft or mushy, it is over watered and should be allowed to receive plenty of light and dry completely before thinking about watering again.
