  • From spring through summer feed every 2 weeks with a fertilizer and keep the soil moist. During the fall and winter feed the cactus monthly.
  • Allow soil to almost dry between waterings. If the stems look shriveled, it is an indication of too little watering.  


May be susceptible to mealy bugs and, if over-watered, root rot.

you recommend feeding more often than most writers but I am inclined to agree with you they need plenty of nutrients I have recently blogged about this
