How to care for Golden Barrel Cactus

Sun: Direct & Indirect
They enjoy some direct sun, but they'll also do well in bright, indirect light. It is best to place this plant somewhere where it will receive some nice morning sun, or a couple hours of afternoon sun, and then indirect light the rest of the day.
Light: Bright
They will do best in bright light. A nice bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window, either with or without blinds, depending on if the plant can handle sun. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.
Water: When fully dry
They like the soil to be completely dry before the next watering. That usually takes about 4 weeks in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but for them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water (i.e. wrinkly or soft leaves). Water a little more often in the warmer months!
Humidity: Low
Their humidity requirement is low, so do not mist them or put them in an enclosed terrarium.
Care Tips
As with all succulents, overwatering is sure to be fatal, so err on the side of too dry rather than too wet, never letting it sit in water. If the side of the plant facing the sun starts to turn yellow or brown, move the plant to a spot where it will receive less direct sunlight than it was receiving.

How to care for Green Tea Plant

Sun: Indirect
They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.
Light: Medium - Bright
They will thrive in bright light, but also can tolerate medium light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. They can be placed anywhere between the middle of the room and the window. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.
Water: When top quarter dry
Allow the top quarter of the soil to dry before watering again. This usually takes about 3 - 4 days in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions.
Humidity: Medium
They will do well in average humidity environments but will appreciate a little bit of humidity if provided, give them a mist daily or get a humidifier! Excess humidity combined with heavy soils can cause fungal diseases.
Care Tips
Container grown tea plants should be planted in a pot with drainage holes. Pay close attention to tea plants grown in containers, and never allow the soil to become completely dry. Fertilize tea plants every two months when they are actively growing in spring and summer.

Water: When top quarter dry
Allow the top quarter of the soil to dry before watering again. This usually takes about 3 - 4 days in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.
Humidity: High
They like a high humidity environment, but avoid misting most Begonias as this can lead to powdery mildew. Alternatively, you can put them around a humidifier. Although they won't die if they don't receive enough humidity, their leaves may have some dry, crunchy, or yellow edges.
Care Tips
From spring - fall you will need to water this plant often, especially while it's in bloom. Keep the soil moist to the touch slightly, but do not over-water. During the winter, cut down watering and allow the top soil to become dry to the touch before watering again.
