DIY Easy Indoor Cacti Garden

DIY Easy Indoor Cacti Garden

I always fancied myself an indoor cacti garden and not only now, just bacuse it’s so fashionable. I’ve always been fascinated by these plants. Cacti can actually survive on very little water, though if you want them to grow (and flower) they do like to be watered more regularlyย  during the growing season. They’re aperfect companion to those who’re busy with their lifestyle and can’t provide much of their time to tend their plants at home. They’re so grateful!

Now back to my little project. How it all started? I got two Habitat plant pots for my outside herb garden, however half of my herbs died whilst I was on my holiday so I had to come up with a new plan. Now the days are becoming colder again and sun peeks only every now and then, I no longer want to sit outside after work, it’s a bit chilly afterall. More and more of my time I spend inside, preparing for autumn.

I also love these Habitat planters because they’re very sturdy but also fairly light. So once filled with soil I could still easily carry them from place to place. The first plant pot served as a cacti garden and you can also notice the second Habitat plan pot is right behind my dining table with my favourite plant, peace lily. While each plant pot carries a diferent plant, they still complement each other quite nicely and I like the consistency in the room.

What will you need for this DIY indoor cacti garden?

  • 1x plant pot
  • 1x bag of cacti soil
  • 1x bag of some stones/pebbles to put at the bottom of the plant pot
  • cacti of your choice
  • decoration of your choice

How to make your own indoor cacti garden in THREe easy steps:

  • Fill quarter of your plant pot with stone. This will prevent soil escaping when watered and also will help drainage and fight against rotting roots.
  • Fill the rest of your plant pot with soil, just enough so you can squeeze your cacti in too.
  • Important: Use heavy duty gloves to transport your cacti from one pot to another!!
  • I also wrap the cactus in newspaper as this helps to prevent contact with your skin and their spines.
  • Giving them a thorough watering before planting will help the roots make good contact with the new soil, and they should grow well too (or so I’ve heard ๐Ÿ™‚ ).
  • Fill the spaces in between your cacti with soil, you can us a spoon for easier
  • Add your decorative elements in.

The process was fairly quick, it only took me 30 minutes in total to build my own indoor cacti garden. As decorative elements I went for a glass with a candle, to add romantic theme for our late night dinners. I’ve also picked shells from our recent holiday in Croatia as a reminder of those carfree days. It actually works so well!

    That looks awesome. I’ve been a fan of cacti since I was little, they are one of the only plants I can keep alive. I guess it’s probably because they don’t need a huge amount of attention. We’ve also added some ferns to our bathroom which are doing well too.

      Aww, ferns in a bathroom sounds amazing! I’ll be redecorating mine soon so I might just add them in. Cacti are perfect, aren’t they. I’m so happy with how this little project turned out. Thanks for your lovely comment.

    This is so cute, and I love the little tealight holder thrown in too!

    Love this idea – I was in London yesterday and saw a few similar ideas its great idea, especially if outdoor space is restrictive.

    • August 9, 2017 / 7:45 pm

      So true Kelly. I really enjoyed this little project so more might be coming!

  4. August 8, 2017 / 6:46 pm

    This is such an amazing idea! It looks so pretty something I would definitely have in my home. xx

      Thank you Tanita, it’s also really quick ๐Ÿ™‚

    Your cacti garden is beautiful!! I’m a massive houseplant addict (we have around 60 throughout our home) but have yet to get cacti. I now feel like I may need some ๐ŸŒต

    • August 9, 2017 / 7:48 pm

      60 plants! That is seriously my dream! Unfortunately my husband already thinks we have too many plants in the house (oh the bore!) and we only have about 5 in each room. You’ve inspired me to sneak more in Xx

  6. August 9, 2017 / 7:38 pm

    That is utterly adorable! This is also perfect for me, as I love plants but I’m not so great on keeping them alive… x

    • August 9, 2017 / 7:49 pm

      I have a lot of plants at home and find it easy, funnily cacti don’t like me and tend to die, so wish me a luck with these Xx

  7. August 14, 2017 / 12:34 pm

    Aww this is so cute – I love how effective and relatively easy it is to do ๐Ÿ™‚

    • August 16, 2017 / 1:28 pm

      It is indeed, honestly it took me like 20 minutes, but be careful with its spines, it’s quite painful Xx

  8. August 16, 2017 / 11:55 am

    Omg this is absolutely gorgeous!! I have a copule of cacti and a couple of succulents and this looks like a beautiful set up for them!! ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

    • August 16, 2017 / 1:27 pm

      Thank you Holly, so glad people like it! I’d recommend creating one with your cacti and succulents, it’s so lovely to look at Xx

  9. August 17, 2017 / 10:01 am

    These look really lovely. I’ve been thinking of doing this for a while, but didn’t have the know-how. I didn’t even know you could buy cacti soil! Thanks for the guide x

    Such a beautiful idea! I love the tealight added in there. My next DIY is to do some cinnamon rolls and after that, I might do some cactus shopping!

    The cacti garden turned out great! I love having them around the house and that they’re so low maintenance. Cute idea to include a shell!

    I love the way you have set your cacti out, especially with the candles in the tub as well, they go so well together! You have made me want to go out and buy my own now!
