- Sunlight: Full sun. when indoors, placing the cactus near an east or west facing window is best for optimal light. If placing outside during the warm months (50+ degrees), we recommend a covered patio that gets really good light
- Watering – drought tolerant species. Water once a month. Make sure the soil drying completely 3 days after watering.
- Soil – premixed bags of cactus soil. You can make your own with sand, organic soil, perlite, and small lava rock. DO NOT use regular potting soil.
- Issues – Root rot is caused when the soil does not have proper drainage and stays moist for too long. We recommend planting your cutting in a clay or terracotta pot with a drainage hole to achieve the highest soil breathability. Scale and Meelybugs can be treated with insecticidal soaps.
Varnish + Vine
We've been around the block. We started Varnish + Vine back in 2015 as a furniture shop of all things. From our first store front in Kansas City (Go Chiefs!) to our new locations across Atlanta — We've always done one thing... Listen to our customers. Plants have always been a part of our business (Hello, Varnish + VINE) but in recent years we've found them to be our speciality. As we've grown an amazing source of exclusive cactus variant cuttings, we've traveled the US hosting pop-up shops and have loved every minute of it — But we've heard from YOU that you can't wait until we're back in your town. Here comes your answer in Varnish + Vine Online! We're going to start small, but have big plans for the future. Stick around for the ride, we love you all!
