People also ask, can you use orchid soil for cactus?
I have heard that orchid bark is good to put in the soil for cacti and succulents since it is fast draining. That normally is not a problem with orchids, because orchids are repotted every other year or so. But for cacti and succulents that could cause a problem.
Likewise, how often do you water orchid cactus? That often means watering once every 10 days or so, depending on conditions such as plant size, temperature, and how much light your orchid cactus gets. Like orchids and other tropical plants, orchid cactus prefers high humidity, but usually grows just fine in average household conditions.

Orchid cactuses that bloom during the day produce blossoms from April to June, but many are night-bloomers, which makes it easy to miss their blooms. Night-bloomers typically flower in late summer to early fall.
