Planting instructions
In many cases it is best to under pot rather than over pot, when potting slower growing or rot prone species.? The more substrate in the pot, the more water that is going to be stored in the pot; larger pots take longer to dry out which can lead to potential problems with rot.? Cactus like Cereus, Trichocereus, Stenocereus, Myrtillocactus, Opuntia are usually suitable for larger pots since they are not as sensitive. Your substrate mix and local climate play an important role in this as well. A top dressing of crushed granite or pea gravel looks good and has benefits as well. It keeps the topsoil from drying out faster than the rest of the soil in the pot, keeps the base of the plant dry and assists in the even distribution of water through the soil.
Rate of growth
Slow
Soil type
Most commercial potting soils are too rich in fresh organic matter for these plants. The most important factor in choosing a planting medium is that it allows food, water and air to get to the roots and is porous enough to let water drain through. Many growers use a mix of a low peat planter mix and pumice (50/50). Sand, small pebbles and vermiculite are ingredients added by many successful growers and hobbyists. Experiment with different combinations to discover the right combination for your conditions.
Watering instructions
Most cactus and succulents have an active period about 1/3 of the year. During this active period watering can be frequent and fertilizer applied. The most active time for most cacti is during the spring and early parts of summer. As this period passes, it is best to reduce the frequency of watering as winter approaches. They require very little water during the cold months. A good watering once a week in hot weather and once a month in the dormant period is a good point to start as you learn your plants needs. Another approach is when the soil is completely dry, water thoroughly then let dry. If in doubt, don?t water.
