The small ball cactii in the garden pot. A group of garden plants which needs the least care except when a child cactii, ie the in times of replanting, growing from seeds etc these plants needs to be cared in matters of watering, lighting, soil content etc.

Cactus stems or pruned rooted cactus plants must be left in openair and the cuttings must be dried before re potting again. The cuts in the stems and roots may get affected by fungus and rot if not properly dried before replanting.

The soil needed for germination of cactus seeds must not lock moisture. A mixture of sharp sand or gravel and a very little manure content will do. Its said not to add organic contents or too much water to cactus seed pots or pots having cactus cuttings as the wet organic content may lead to rot the seeds or cactus stems. The way to manure cactus plants is let them grow and then only add manure as needed.
