Watering takes place only when the soil has been dry for days, usually every 2-3 weeks can be enough; if the climate is particularly hot we can slightly intensify the irrigations, using 1-2 buckets of water . If we want to grow these plants in a vase, we should water them a bit more often, compared to plants cultivated in the ground; Every 2-3 years we should renew the substratum in the vase, or enrich with organic amender.
