How to care for cacti

After finding myself picking out lots of lovely cactus images over on Pinterest, I've recently added a couple of new cacti to my houseplant collection.

Although I can't claim to be a horticultural expert myself, I do have a whole shelf full of books on the subject. My go-to plant care book is The House Plant Expert by Hessayon. I'm sure many of you will have a copy of this popular little book lying around at home. Mine is wonderfully dated and full of fabulous 80s style interiors and it's a handy little reference guide that I dip into from time to time.

Here's what I've learnt about how to care for my cacti.
