Sometimes watering cactus and succulents indoors can be tricky. If they’re spaced close together or growing tightly in tiny pots, it’s time-consuming to pull each one out to water (and difficult and possibly perilous to work a watering can in there). Try this watering solution instead: Attach an 18-in.-long piece of clear tubing to the spout of a condiment bottle. Then fill the bottle with water, guide the tubing into the pot, give a squeeze and dampen the soil. It’s easier to maneuver the flexible tubing into each pot than a watering can spout. Plus, by using the long tube, you can avoid getting poked by sharp spines on prickly plants.
