Cactus collection & brass plant bowl


  • Position: bright but indirect light
  • Compost: specialist cacti compost
  • Rate of growth: slow
  • Hardiness: tender (indoors only)
  • Current height: approximately 7cm (including pot)

    This set of 6 mixed (un-named) cacti make a great starter collection, and will look fab lined up on a bright windowsill, potted up together into one large bowl-shaped planter. They are incredibly easy to look after, so make a great option for the first-time house plant gardener.

    This versatile brass bowl is a blank canvas just waiting for you to create your own indoor or outdoor masterpiece. Just add inspiration…

    Layer it with soil and polished pebbles and dot it with cacti to create a mini desert landscape - the gleaming sides providing the sunshine.

    Made from fine, flexible natural polished brass with pleated detail.

  • Home care: Place it in a bright spot and in spring and summer, water when the compost gets dry, but make sure it never sits in excess water for any length of time. In autumn cut back on the water and keep it almost dry throughout the winter - watering only if it starts to look a bit shrivelled. Avoid a humid atmosphere (no bathrooms or steamy kitchens) and in the warmer months, open a window or door occasionally so it can enjoy the fresh air. Repot every year or two into a slightly larger pot using cacti compost. You will find it easier to tackle if you concertina a sheet of newspaper and then fold this around the spines, leaving a 'tail' that you can use to lift the plant out of one pot and into another. Otherwise invest in some thorn-proof gloves!
