Did you know? All cacti are succulents, but not all succulents are cacti. Succulents are plants that store water and nutrients in their leaves, stems and even roots. The more commonly recognized succulents are varieties like echeveria, crassula, kalanchoe, aeonium and aloe. They have been on the plant scene in a big way for a number of years and we always stock them in many colors, textures and sizes.

For those looking to take things to another level, our succulent sections have been really diversifying with cacti! Architectural, full of texture, and even colorful, cacti make a statement in any indoor space. Adding succulents to your cactus garden can make the display absolutely extraordinary— the perfect marriage of hard and soft design elements!

Nothing makes cactus and succulents sing like the right pottery! This season we are inspired by a color palette and patterns influenced by the American South West and Mediterranean for something that is really visually captivating!

The care for cactus and succulents is as low maintenance as it gets. Since they both store water in their leaves, stems, or roots they tolerate long periods of drought in their natural habitat. If your container has drainage holes, water thoroughly once a week during an active growth period. If your container does not have drainage holes, water sparingly to moisten soil but be sure water does not pool up at the bottom of the container which can cause rotting. Allow soil to dry out between waterings.

Place cacti and succulents in a brightly-lit south facing window indoors or an area with bright, indirect light outdoors during the summer months. Most plants can tolerate full sun, but must be gradually acclimated to prevent sunburn. If the light source is inadequate, etiolation will occur and your plant will become leggy as it stretches out towards a light source.
