When to use Debco Cacti & Succulent Mix

Move container plants into larger containers of fresh Cacti & Succulent Mix at regular intervals. Cacti can be re-potted most times of the year.

Whilst roots protruding from drainage holes are an indication that re-potting is necessary, the only sure way to discover the state of the roots is to remove the cactus or succulent from its container and examine them carefully. If fresh root tips are showing all over the surface of the root ball, or forming a thick spiral at the base, then re-potting is necessary.

How to use Debco Cacti & Succulent Mix

Remove your cactus or succulent from its old pot.

Remove loose soil from the root ball, selecting a new pot one size up from the old pot.

Place some mix in the bottom of the new pot (mix must be moist, not wet, prior to potting). Then position your cactus or succulent in the pot. Spread the Cacti & Succulent Mix carefully around the plant roots.

Tap the freshly potted plant lightly on the bench or table to settle the soil in the pot.

Shake the container gently by tapping the bottom on the ground to allow mix to settle. Do not firm or pack down. Normal watering will soon give all the firming needed.

Initial soaking after potting is essential

Protect plant from heat and strong sunlight for a few days, and keep moist.

Hints

To save time, re-pot as many cacti or succulents as possible at the one time. Make sure that you close the bag tightly after use to keep moist. Store in a cool, dry location.

Fertilising: Cacti and succulents do require nourishment and after one year in the same pot a regular feeding pattern is best established. Use only low nitrogen slow-release granular fertiliser or a quality liquid low nitrogen fertiliser.

Watering: To grow cacti and succulents successfully, regular watering patterns are necessary. When watering, a good soaking is essential and then a period of time should elapse to allow the soil to almost dry out. In the case of a small pot in a hot sunny position, this could be every day to two days. In a cool, sunless position it might be one to three months. The larger the pot, the longer it can go between waterings. However, in winter cacti and succulents like to remain dry with watering recommencing in spring.

Position: Sunlight is very important for Cacti growth and flowering. The more sun available, the better the shape, colour and spine formation will be on the plant.
