Irrigation CylindropuntiaTenere 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 . Letís water these plants only when the substratum is clearly dry using 1-2 glasses of water ; during this period of the year we should intervene every 4-5 weeks , or even less if the weather is rainy.

Care Cylindropuntia
The development of these plants is columnar, they grow aiming high with a scarce lateral development. This plant in the spring assumes a green colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 2 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. The Cylindropuntia is a succulent plant.

Temperatures CylindropuntiaSole pieno
For a balanced development of the the Cylindropuntia it is advisable to locate it in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. A great part of succulent plants can endure low temperatures, even below 5įC, but if weíre growing them in a harsh climate we must avoid watering.During the spring the the Cylindropuntia can't stand the cold weather; should the climate be particularly harsh, with minimum night-time temperatures some degrees below zero, let's cover our plant with non-woven fabric.

Adversity Cylindropuntia
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.

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