glad to say that most of the cacti have been showing significant improvement. :biggrin: Still one or two have not improved as much as the others.

This one has not been lucky and has needed to be repotted a few times. After each time, the cactus was watered after a few weeks. Is this from too much or too little water?




Is this cat damage? Pretty sure it is, but want some more experienced opinions. Will sulfur powder prevent rot and decay?

That does look like cat damage.

Sulfur I have heard will help, although I have never tried it personally.

Etiolated cacti tend to take a while to return to anything normal looking.

They are definitely looking fatter and healthier though, good job.

They are indeed looking healthier. :thumbup:

Pesky cats, If they are a problem tie some fishing line around your plants to deter them, I've found this worked for me in the past.

Cat damage was carelessness. They were being watered from a tub on the ground and one of them swiped at it when wasn't being watched I guess. It was always a bit mushy.

Regarding the elephant's leg, I seem to recall it doing better before it needed to be repotted. This has just transpired in the last two-three weeks. We'll skip it in the next watering cycle and see how it goes. But the color on it is looking much better. Most of the yellow is gone and it is turning a healthy shade of jade.

This isn't related, just wanted to show how they were coming along on average. You can see the new growth in this one.
