San Pedro Thin Top
    #1756129 - 07/28/03 02:30 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Bought a cutting about a month ago, potted it and after a week or so, it started growing.
In the beginning, the top had a very different (lighter) green than the base, but after 2-3 weeks, it resolved itself and the cactus has now a nice dark green colour.
However, there is one problem. The part that grows (the top) is too thin in comparision to the rest.
The cactus gets enough light (we have days with 16 hours of light right now with about 8 hours of direct sunlight).
It got even sunburned (lil yellow spots) so its receiving enough light i guess.
Temperature has been around 30? C for the first three weeks, last week has been lower with temperature around 20? C. (At night ofcourse its much lower but not beneath 15? C)
I water it every week, however, no fertilizers are added because i have a commercial cactusground and i read somewhere that adding fertilizers with commercial ground may fuck up the acidic levels.

So, what could be the problme with the thinner top?
Should i add fertilizers?
Should i water it more?
Or should i just wait and hope ? :smile:

They do alright with normal fert? I thought special cactus fert was necessary, but I've looked everywhere around where I live & havn't been able to find it.

Question to everyone......... but

Are 'little yellow spots' even a sign of sun burn?

My seedling was burn when i moved it outside....it got really dark and well 'burnt' looking....then as time went by it returned to more a normal color.....and now you cant even tell it ever happened...

Maybe the yellow spots are a sign of something else?

Tantalus: many plant fetrilizers can be used if they do not have too much nitrogen.

DazedSol: yellow/browning can be symptomatic of sunburn but it can also be a sign of disease.

Alright, update.
Thin top doesnt change :/
I have bought cacti fert and added more water weekly.
The soil on the surface keeps being dry though after watering, so maybe it doesnt receive enough water.
Temperature and light are quite alright i think.

Either all that, or it's rootbound, inspect the roots and where they are in the pot, if so, put it in a bigger pot.
