    Default Slow grow-cactus

    I have about 7 cacti in my house and I've had them for months, but it doesn't seem like they are growing. Any tips?

    Are they in small pots? some cacti out grow their pots.
    Do they get sun? water?
    Cacti go for long dormant periods and chances are that yours are alive.

    I moved them into bigger pots about a month ago. They get sun, they sit on my window sill, I water about once a week and use miracle grow for cactus... I do have one that has started to flower the past few days, so i hope they are a live... Just not sure if there is anything I can do to help them grow. Frustrating little things!

    Unless they are succulents, such as Aloe Vera, you may be over watering them. Do some research on the types of cacti you have for proper water/feeding schedules.

    Good thinking... I'm so thankful for the senior members (not an old folks joke!) on TOH. I would be lost without y'all
