My husband has started collecting cactus and is unsure when to stop and start watering over the autumn/winter period. He thinks they shouldnt be watered between october and march. Can anyone clarify this point please.
That's about right Sue, mine sit in a cold porch from Oct-March with no water.
Mine are also in a cold porch,but I water mine sparingly about once a month throughout winter,I,ve had some of them over 40 years,so what I do must suit them
the death for a cactus is to over feed it and over water it and to neglect to water it at all.they draughts and airless rooms but like warm sunshine.do not put between the curtains in winter.
