Watering Opuntia cylindricaTenere asciutto

Succulent plants can also endure long periods of time without watering; usually as the climate gets colder they need less water, while during the summer months they should be watered abundantly . We suggest watering these plants only from time to time, but we must remember to wet the soil deeply using 1-2 glasses of water every 4-5 weeks .

Treatments Opuntia cylindrica
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.

Soil Opuntia cylindrica
These succulent plants need to be located in an accentuated and drained substratum. We suggest repotting every 2-3 years.
