Care Recommendations

These are our recommendations for growing these plants in the Bay Area. Microclimates vary, and so may your results.

 

Sun

Full sun - requires West or South exposure, 4 hour direct sun minimum average year-round

 

Partial sun - Can handle less, say an East window or a very bright room with good indirect light

 

Partial shade - generally understory or canopy plants; can handle dappled sun, shaded by canopy or other plants, but still require some direct sun or bright indirect light

 

Some plants can handle a wide range of sun conditions.

 

Soil

Cactus Jungle's Ultra Soil Blend, or other standard well-draining cactus and succulent mix

 

Cactus Jungle's Jungle Cactus/Orchid Blend, for a bit more moisture retention

 

Extra Chunky Add lava/pumice for faster drainage for rot-prone plants
