Select your region to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Easter Cactus in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Easter Cactus after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
Dottie is a piece of my great great grandmothers cactus which makes it rather stressful to care for. She doesn’t need much maintenance which is nice. When you get a bloom, which isn’t too often , it is really satisfying. The ease of care, ability to share pieces with family members and the rewarding blooms make Dotty a very enjoyable houseplant.
