During late Spring we can place them outdoors, possibly sheltered by the wind.Succulent plants can also be cultivated in a cold green house, with temperatures which must be below 5įC for many species, but in this case itís necessary to keep them totally dry.

Irrigation Stenocactus pentacanthusTenere asciutto
We suggest watering the The Stenocactus pentacanthus every 4-5 weeks with 1-2 glasses of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with water. Letís remember that the succulent plants can withhold water inside their materials, therefore they need to be watered only when the weather is hot.

Adversity Stenocactus pentacanthus
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.
