Caring for Cacti Once Received

As soon as your new cactus is received it is important to open the box and carefully unwrap it. Let the cactus slowly adapt to your home by letting it sit out for a few days in open air away from any direct sun before planting it. Once it has been at least 2 to 3 days you are ready to plant it in dry soil.
Do not water the cactus for another 3 to 5 days once it has been planted. Once watering begins start slowly and work your way up to regular watering over the span of multiple waterings. In the active growing season it is possible to feed the cactus a diluted solution of any commercially available cactus fertilizer, or a vegetable/flower fertilizer at half strength.
