Cactus Problems Heading into Winter
Hey Hap…hope things are going well…a bit of rot has set in in both branches of the mealybug cactus…should I cut off above the rot and put both branches in the potting room for a couple a weeks after a dousing of roottone and then have you come back to repot it? thanks dianne
treat the rot spots with hydrogen-peroxide and leave on if you can… it is hard to get cacti to root this time year.
Hi Hap…me again…so I’ll spray the hp…how often?
Sorry about that I should have told you!
Spray three days apart, repeating three or four times. The rot should dry out and scab-over in a couple of weeks. If it doesn’t by then, more drastic measures will need to be taken.
