Bertie likes his soil moist, while Wallace will want some water when the top inch of soil feels dry. The others are happy to dry out between drinks.
Spike and Suri love the sun, so they'll be happiest in a well lit spot. Bertie and Wallace are perfectly happy in shadier spots.
Bertie and Wallace love humidity. Mistthem a couple of times a week or let them live in the bathroom, basking happily in steam.
Wallace will grow quite quickly in brighter light, so settle him into a shady spot if you want to keep him tiny.

About the tiny plants set
Bertie - You’ll find Boston ferns in the wild in humid, shady areas. When looking after one at home, the rule is to never let a Boston fern dry out. Although it's very tempting, try to resist touching their fronds as they really don't like it and it might turn them brown.
Wallace - also known as the monkey face plant. In the jungles of Central and South America, it lives in the shade of other trees, and all those holes let light shine through to its lower leaves. As a house plant, all those holes just make it look really cool.
Suri – Suri is a succulent. The main thing to know about succulents is they’re incredibly easy to look after. They store lots of water in those fleshy leaves, so hardly ever need a drink.
Spike – This cactus couldn’t be more straightforward to look after. He’ll take as much sun as you can give him and only needs water when his soil is totally dry. He’s prickly, so keep him away from pets and children.
The set also includes:
Clay pots - We love the beautiful texture of these fibreclay pots. The contemporary shape and natural material will fit into any home.
