Water 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 . We suggest watering these plants with 1-2 glasses of water only when the soil is perfectly dry, generally it needs to be watered about every 4-5 weeks . Let's avoid to exceed.

Pests 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.

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