Lady Finger Cactus - Mammillaria Elongata - House Plants Delivery Toronto - JOMO Studio

How to care for Lady Finger 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.

Pet Caution

This plant is moderately toxic and can cause some adverse reactions when ingested so it is best to not let your pets eat it, which we advise for all plants in general. The severity of the reaction will depend on how much of the plant is ingested but, if you know your pet typically does not eat your plants, this plant will be suitable for your home..

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 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: Low

Their humidity requirement is low, so do not mist them or put them in a terrarium.

Care Tips

Check soil moisture and water when the top inch of soil is dry. When watered, give enough water to wet the soil thoroughly, drain the excess water, and then let it go again until the soil dries down. In the winter, water when the top 2 inches of soil is dry because of slowed plant growth. For the best light, rotate the pot each week so that all sides of the plant receive some direct sunlight. Also helpful to note, pruning your lavender flowers is good for the plant; it will increase sprouting and the thickness of the flowers.

Lily of the Valley - Convallaria majalis  - House Plants Delivery Toronto - JOMO Studio

Water: Keep evenly moist

They like the soil to stay consistently moist, but not soaking wet. Give them water whenever just the surface of the soil is starting to get dry. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

Humidity: Medium

Care Tips

Although they are tolerant of medium to lower light, bright, indirect light (with some morning sun) would be ideal if you wish to promote blooms on your plant - slightly cooler nighttime temperatures will also aid in the process. Since they are terrestrial orchids and not epiphytes, your plant will want to stay potted in a potting soil mixture rather than just wood chips or orchid bark.
