What kind of cactus to start with?
Hi! I have had success with succulents and herbs so far but I think it is time to get a cactus (or two) and I'm wondering if you have any suggestions for one that will be good for a beginner and will flower.
Also, I assume that cactus prefer soil that is 100% grit. Would that be accurate? I keep my succulents in 1/3 cactus mix, 1/3 perlite, and 1/3 lava rock. What do you suggest for cactus? And please keep in mind that Lowes is pretty much my only soil/grit source where I'm at (rural Iowa).
