This is @MamaBotanica.Amsterdam taking over @WildernisAmsterdam for a few days! 👋✨
I get to spend some of my time in this amazing plant store and thought I'd share some of my favorite plants and care tips with you guys! 🌿🌱 First of all; cacti! 🌵 I love how they all have their own personality and are not afraid to bite back. Excellent attitude in life. 👊
Cacti love loads of sun and not too much water. In the winter I stop giving them water all together, so they have a long resting period while there is less sunlight. They might shrink a little, but will bounce back when you slowly start watering again in March. Just make sure it doesn't completely wrinkle to death during the resting period. After that; give it some water every three/four weeks, after you have made sure it has been dry for quite some time.
Don't have enough light for your cactus? Make sure to give even less water; it'll grow slower and uses even less water. 🌞
Also I love collecting vintage pots; these I've found on my last hunt, but Wildernis has some nice ones as well.
