Plant Care Guide: Spring Cactus

Spring Cactus // Rhipsalidopsis

Signalling the start of the new season, the Spring Cactus gets her name from her vibrant star-shaped spring florals, which start to bloom in Spring. With blooms ranging from bright pinks to deep reds, this stunner is the perfect pick to add a pop of colour as the weather warms up. But fret not, this succulent sister looks fab year round - blooms or no blooms. Plus, she's pet friendly!

Love notes

Keep your plant pal nourished and supported with a good quality plant food like We The Wild Grow Concentrate and We The Wild Support Pellets. These powerful plant essentials will keep your plants happy, strong and resilient, and will reward you with new growth a'plenty! 
Don't forget to wipe down those leaves when they're looking a little dusty. You can also spray with We The Wild Protect Spray every couple of weeks to keep leaves looking lush and healthy. 
Follow the recommended advise on watering above - if unsure, a Moisture Meter could be your secret weapon! This handy tool will show you exactly how dry your soil is to avoid any over or under watering fails. 
To ensure your new bestie gets enough drainage, we recommend keeping them in a nursery pot and displaying in a cover pot. If you do want to pot up your plant, make sure your decorative pot has a drainage hole and you've removed the plug. 
A typical succulent, this houseplant hun doesn't need to be watered as frequently as some other indoor plants, making her an excellent choice for those looking for a beautiful but low maintenance option. But be sure not to overwater or she may start to wilt or turn yellow.
