This information is specific to Spring or the pre growing season. Knowing when to water cacti can be extremely daunting and most people will have killed a cactus or 2 by over watering myself included! I use a lot of visual queues to know when to water coupled with experience and a little intuition. This video will form part of a 4 part series where I will show you the watering regime I follow and what I am looking out for when deciding whether to water a cactus or not.It is not an exact science and there are times when even I don’t get it right. You will need to take your own climatic conditions into account however the visual indicators are universal. Thank you all for subscribing, watching and commenting. The growing season is approaching & it is going to a bumper season! You can support my channel at You can connect with me at The music featured in this video is by a producer called Nyte. They were kind enough to let me use their music in my video. Check out their channel here: Video Rating: / 5

    I really enjoyed this video. I think you're very informative and knowledgeable. I would love see a video on rot prone cacti. Your thoughts on which are most prone to root rot to the least prone to root rot. Thanks again for your knowledge.

    Would it be harmful to the cacti if it gets watered during dormancy?

    Wonderful video! (need to watch it again) Question: How cold is it at your place winter time?

    This spring my astrophytum myriostigma was beautiful and full. Looked like it didn’t need water. One morning went out to greenhouse and it was collapsed to one side. I watered it immediately and it has somewhat recovered but still leans slightly and is a little wrinkled on one side at the base. Are these plants more sensitive to lack of water? Are there any other signs to look for? Your videos are helping me move along quickly in my learning curve. Appreciate every one.

    This was very helpful. Thank you. We are getting ready to head into fall here in the states, but we are expecting more 100 degree days this week. Not time to back off watering yet! By the way, your plants look fantastic. The greenhouse makes a huge difference.
