Hello, I just purchased a couple very small plants. One is a cactus, a tiny (2 inches tall) cactus they call it a 'Bunny Ear' when I purchased it from, and have little groups of 30 needles that stick into you very easy, and a 'Sunset Jade' (3 inches tall) which is just a normal Jade plant I think. but anyways.. I'm a total bufoon with plants as i've never owned any before, but i'd like to know how to take care of them. I purchased them to put on my desk to make it look nice. About the cactus and the jade, I'd like to know how often I need to water them, they are still very very small and need t grow.. I watered them about a week and a half ago and today, is this fine? Also the jade has some purple lining around the edges of the leafs is this normal? I had watered the cactus a week and a half ago too.. afraid to water it right now I thought i'd get some advice.. also, the pots are roughly 2 1/2 inches by 2 inches big. Since the plants are still small i was wondering about how big they should get before I put them in a different pot. Any help would be appreciated, I'm new to this kinda stuff, never really cared about it before.. but now that I think about it having plants is kind of neat.. anyways.. Thanks in advance.
