    "This video is wrong on so many levels..
    You dont take into account people living in different climates and different parts of the world
    You dont take into account how different species grow require different care.. Not all cactus are desert cactus,
    You assume the problem with wet feet has to do with lighting due the arc of the sun at certain times of the year and pot size.. when really it has more to do with soil composition, drainage material and watering cycles. If you havea good living soil your plants will do best this has been proven time and time again. Nobody should sterilize the soil for that reason and also a sterile medium only makes it a faster target for nasty organisms as they normally reproduce faster than good organisms. When your soil is sterile there is nothing for those nasties to compete with and they flourish. Especially when growing from seed."

    OUR ANSWER:

    1. The video is called TOP 5 mistakes in the care of cacti. In order to describe and show all the mistakes and combinations of errors - it is necessary to create hours-long series about this topic. For this reason, we do not accept the claim.
    2. Regardless of whether the plant is planted in sand or clay, whether it is desert or forest, whether it comes from the temperate zone or from the tropics — roots will die if they are constantly wet.
    3. And yes, the intensity of illumination in combination with temperature are the main factors influencing the plant's moisture intake, in the case when the cactus develops normally. Again, the video is about the TOP-5 mistakes, and it's not an encyclopedia for care.
    4. What is a good living soil - I don't know such a thing. And what evidence are you talking about? I add sheep and leaf humus to the composition of the soil for growing plants, if I do not sterilize it, at least a dozen pests and God knows how many other bacterias and fungi will kill my cacti.
    5. You are not attentive. Sterilized soil is populated primarily by beneficial bacteria and fungi. You plant a healthy plant in a sterile soil, and on the roots of the plant there are those beneficial bacteria and fungi.

    Wait I got a question. My cactus is growing brown at the end, its gotten limp, and a little mushy, and I'm confused if either I got Root rot or maybe it's the way I have it. I have an indoor cactus, it's always in the sun and I water it once a week, it's been doing fine, I've been having it for a year already, and then just recently I saw brown at the end, I'm afraid that its dying and I need help immediately so someone please help!

    I am guilty of killing a cactus for overwatering it. And I agree with that, even when cacti enjoy heat and the sunlight, they will suffer if placed directly under the sun. At least in my experience, that has been the case.

    I believe everything stated but I must just be lucky. I live in a old growth. Oak forest with little to no sun. In summer it's like a rain forest I have many different catus that some how flourish with lots of heavy rain and humidity I use them next to flowers to keep the deer away. And I can't seem to water my succulents enough. Even in regular moisture control potiting soil, Hope they don't all die now that I know better, my eliphant ears are what can't handll e shade or water

    Wait a minut, in the last mistake, the cactus can't survive in the 12:00, when the sun light is 'hitting' direct to it, will cause stress to root!? I didn't know it. And the temperature to cactus is 15~30°C, like lettuce... If in the 1 case, who live in Tropical country like Brazil? The temperature is more than 30°C at 12:00 on summer.
    Correct me if I wrote wrong.

    Is that you Stephen hawking?? Had my cacti for years.....re watering.....water to simulate natural habitat.....ie...let the soil dry out completely...then give a good watering....I soak my cacti pots for about an hour in water.....and then that's it for a few weeks. Simple. Like in the desert....long periods of drought..followed by rainfall. Not had one die on me yet. Water thoroughly...when the soil dries out...NOT sips of water frequently else roots will never dry out & will then lead to root rot.

    I have a collection of cactus now and many years as far as now I know most of them like the straight sun light on makes them strong and healthy some like less sun light but they are the exception, they worst enemy for all cactus is watering them much I water them only when the soil is completely dry is matter of experience, they can stand high temperatures and low till -15 as far as they don't get wet and watered,the winter the watering must be rare to none at all that has to do with the experience you get after many years of messing with those beautiful plans, worths it!!!

    humidity is a killer, if you don't have air conditioning and live in humid climates your plant will prune up and rot

    Is that ok to plant more than one cactus (different types) in a same pot?

  • Alicia Moon

    I have many questions now.
    1) Does the first mistake still apply to indoor cacti? I live in a colder climate but it's always warmer than 60°F / 15°C in my house.
    2a) Is the cactus harmed by putting it into a pot that's too big for it, or is this just an aesthetic preference?
    2b) How do you know when it's time to transplant a cactus to a new pot? How do you know if your cactus is cramped?
    3) What is a good soil mixture that I can purchase? I don't have a green enough thumb and dont trust myself to mix my own.
