This makes watering cactus a lot easier to manage. CACTUS-GRO+ cactus growing media is the perfect choice for all your cactus and succulent growing needs.

CACTUS-GRO+ can be used as part of a cactus potting mix or cactus potting soil, it can be used on its own as a complete cactus potting media if you are propagating cacti and succulents for better root growth, and it looks fantastic as a top dressing.
