The cutting edge of houseplant cultivation. This terracotta kit has a glazed interior and is outfitted with a passive hydroponic system known as “wicking,” which brings water and nutrients up to the plant's roots. So whether you forget to water, overwater, or both, this planter's got you covered. Comes equipped with everything you’ll need to start growing, just add water and set in a sunny window.

How long does it take to grow?
Prickly Pear Cactus seeds take 14-21 days to sprout.
How much sun will it need?
Prickly Pear Cacti thrive in temps between 72°-76°F and with at least 6 hours of direct sunlight (an unobstructed south or west-facing window is best). Starting in Mar-Sept will provide longer days and thus optimal light. If starting during cooler months, it’s recommended that you supplement natural light with a grow light (fluorescent or LED).
Can I put it outside?
This Grow Kit is designed to grow a small Prickly Pear Cactus; however, you can transplant the plant into a pot or the ground for a larger and more robust plant. Transplant outside into a location with full sun after the threat of frost has passed, and sprouts are at least 2” tall. Harden off plant for 5-7 days by placing it outdoors in partial sun during the day, and bringing it indoors at night.
How is it reusable?
The stainless steel net pot and recycled glass grow medium can both be reused—simply rinse with hot water. Add new seeds and use soil or coco pith to help seeds germinate. Use a water soluble fertilizer and follow its instructions.
