It needs a lot of light, but like the rest of the plants we’ve seen so far, it shouldn’t be direct.
Regarding the watering of the ficus elastica, it needs to be frequent to always keep the soil moist. The plant will indicate the frequency of irrigation. Before it dries, you have to water it.
This other plant has also been hitting very hard in decoration for several years. Originally from America, today we can find it all over the world in countless varieties and sizes. As a curiosity, cacti are able to resurrect. In the desert, they can go long periods without water. The cactus begins to shrink until, if it still does not receive water, it is uprooted from the ground so that the little water that remains is not absorbed by the earth. It can take weeks as well, even years, and when it rains again, it has the ability to re-root itself to the ground and return to its natural state.
As you may have guessed or already know, cacti hardly need care and they perfectly withstand heat and drought. But only if necessary, so we will take care of keeping your soil moist. Watering them once a week in summer and once every fifteen days in winter is usually enough, but we must be vigilant in case the plant asks for more water.
Regarding the sun, although they can resist it, it is better not to hit them directly so that they grow healthy and without problems. They need a lot of natural light, but not direct.
Along with cacti, succulents have become a true revolution in interior decoration. There has been a real “boom” that has flooded all the houses and social networks of succulents, and this year, they are still in the gap.
Due to its great variety of species, we have at our disposal a wide range of colors, textures and shapes to decorate any corner of the home.
Succulents care :
These plants need little water since they are able to absorb moisture from the air, retaining it in their leaves. So too much water can be lethal for them. With one watering per week in summer and one watering every two weeks in winter it will be enough.
Succulents need a lot of light but never direct as they need to stay hydrated and save water reserves and if the light gives them directly they will not be able to perform this vital function.
