What if my flowers don’t last?

There may be a number of reasons for this. Firstly, just give us a call so we can find out what the problem is and what the best resolution would be.

Cacti & Succulents

Immediate Care and Handling These plants require minimal care. Watering should be done sparingly. For cacti, allow the soil in the pots to become dry, then water thoroughly and let dry again. Succulents require slightly more watering than do true cacti.

Background Cacti and succulents are adapted to arid environments. Cacti are native to the Western Hemisphere only. True cacti have thick green stems and lack leaves. They are partly or completely covered with sharp protective spines. Succulents have fleshy leaves and stems and are widely found around the world.

Care and feeding Cacti Cacti benefit from a rest period during the winter months. Move the plants to a cool place (if possible) and withhold all water for a 2- to 3-month period during the winter. Formation of flower buds takes place during this period. Feed cacti with a slow-release fertilizer at the end of the rest period.

Succulents Most succulent plants are native to tropical or subtropical regions and require slightly more water than do true cacti. Active growth takes place as long as adequate water and light are available. Succulents do not always require a rest period as cacti do. Cacti and Succulents require sunlight. A bright sunny window sill or area that gets full sun is perfect for them. For indoor or office environment’s, it may be necessary to put them outside for at least 3 hours per week to gain maximum lifespan for your succulent.

FAQ’s How often should I water my cacti and succulents?

Less often than you think. There is no set interval, but as a rule of thumb, allow the soil to completely dry before watering. Overwatering often kills cacti. The pots and terrariums that your succulents and cacti are planted into may not contain drainage. Ensure that only the moss, rocks and soil is lightly watered, do not water the plants directly- doing so will kill the plant. A fine mist water sprayer is the best way to water your terrarium.

I have an aloe plant, and small aloe plants are coming up around it. Can I pot these?

Many succulents and cacti reproduce vegetatively by growing offshoots, often called pups. As soon as the pups have developed roots, they can be removed from the mother plant and potted.

Should I move my cactus to a larger pot?

Most cacti are slow growers and can be left in the same pot for several years. If you do repot your plant, chose a pot that is about a 1.5 cm larger in diameter than the original. Some succulents (e.g., aloe) are rapid growers and will have to be re-potted or divided frequently.

Problems? We hope not, but if so contact us. We want you to have a great succulent experience.

Orchid Care

Orchids are highly decorative with elegant sprays of long lasting flowers. Flowers range in colour and may be single colour, spotted or striped.

Orchids are warm climate plants but may be easily grown indoors as long as there is sufficient humidity and bright, indirect light. Don not allow plants to dry out and keep the growing medium moist but not too wet, by watering thoroughly once a week and the allowing the excess to drain away completely. For orchids planted directly into a container without drain holes, spray the growing medium with water every few days.

Spring is the main flowering period for orchids, but flowers may appear year round in warmer areas such as Brisbane and upto far north Queensland.

When the flowers have finished cut the main stem approximately 20cm above the soil as a secondary stem may produce more flowers.

Water with a liquid fertiliser at half strength every 10 days during the growing season, or use the fertiliser droplets available from Daisy’s Florist.

If necessary re pot the orchids as more roots form ensuring that the main body of the orchid sits high in the container.

Light: Outdoor light and shaded or dappled light Indoor light- bright filtered light

Flowers: Mostly during spring, but longer flowering periods from Brisbane – North.

Soil: Well drained and don’t over water.
