The choice of the pot

The choice of the pot will have to be the correct size and must have an essential soil for its survival of both the cactus and the succulent plants. The clay pots are a good choice for planting cactus, as well as ceramic pots. If your cactus gets too big then it would be interesting to transport it to another pot of a larger size.

If a cactus is in the wrong pot it can cause its roots to rot. If the plant is too heavy, the ideal is to put a smaller pot inside a larger one and fill the space between the two with gravel, so you can give your cactus a heavy enough base without running the risk of its roots rotting.

The size

Both cacti and succulents need pots that are as small as possible , you will have to find pots that are just the right size to fit the plant. For some plants, the holes in the bottom of the pot do not provide enough drainage so you will need to drill additional holes.

Choosing the perfect pot for your cactus

  • First you will have to select a pot that is not too big and make sure that it has enough holes in the bottom.
  • Fill the pot about a third full with filler material.
  • Test the plant for the size of the pot and center the plant and fill the spaces between the plant and the pot with soil so that it covers the roots and shake the pot so that the soil settles and do not forget to give it away so that the cactus begins to enjoy your new home.
