    please do not use ordinary top soil you get from gardens, etc. it may be too rich in nutrients that may 'burn' the roots of the more sensitive species. and that is not your only problem. some soil may contain too much clay that would retain too much water for the cacti.

    best is to go to the gardening section of stores (ntuc, giant, etc.) and buy a pack of cacti/succulent soil. those are mixed with sand/pumice/etc to make the soil drain faster after watering.

    these guys are EXTREMELY HARDY. they can survive the tropical conditions in SG & don't need much attention, other than plenty of sunlight. else, they will etiolate.
