How Often to Water Cactus Plants 

Tips for making sure you are giving your cactus the proper amount of water.

It’s important to remember that overwatering can be detrimental to cacti, as it can lead to root rot.  Cacti  are equipped with a thick fleshy stem that acts like a water reservoir. 

Cacti are pretty low-maintenance when it comes to watering. These desert plants don’t require frequent watering like many other houseplants. 

A common misconception about cacti is that they thrive in arid conditions & do not require water. While cacti do naturally grow in dry areas they still need regular hydration.

How often you water your cactus depends on a few key factors such as:

The size of your succulent The type of pot  The season  The humidity levels  The amount of sunlight

A general rule of thumb for healthy cactus plants is to check the soil moisture level to make sure it is bone dry before considering watering your cactus plant.
