San pedro Help
    #3520899 - 12/19/04 05:04 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

My little buddy isn't looking to hot. I got him when he was an inch. He's 6 now.
Anyway the other day he started getting yellow splochy patches all over him, a few little hard black spots apeared,and about a quarter of an inch around the base turned chalky white.

I thought mabey it was the cold, so i brought him inside, and put him on my windowsill, but its now even that cold in Texas. Hell it hasn't even dropped to freezing yet.

What can i do to help him out?

My best bet is you overwatered. A pic would help.

Watered ever 2-4 days up to about 3 inches, than just let nature take its course. Haven't gotten any rain in the past week, or two, so today i sprinkled a tiny bit of water on it.

Usually when cactus turns yellow they need more light, and your cactus is being overwatered.

how is never watering overwatering? Seriously. It gets what the sky gives it. Which isn't much in texas. And its got a drain in the bottom.
and up untill i took it inside, it was getting light all day.

is the cold a problem? Does it need to be inside?

It might need some ferts. Have you been ferting it and how much? When it's cold, you want to cut way back on watering or stop altogether.

From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.” (attributed to Alexis de Tocqueville political philosopher Circa 1835)

You live in America, it is winter now.. the cactus doesn't want to grow because it is in dormancy

Keep it in a dry spot, cold weather is fine that will encourage dormancy

whatever you do don't feed it in the winter!

Did you have your first frost yet?

You should take it in and place near a south facing window or glass door..

For watering they say stick a chopstick or somthing like that in the soil and wait 20 min, and when you pull it out if its dry then water.

kracker:
just leave the wood piece stuck in the soil, when it's wet the wood gets dark and moist, when it's dry, the wood stays bone dry...
to stick and take off the wood piece might hurt the roots and promote root rotting...

nope.. if you are careful, you can work a water tester into the soil with no adverse effects,

in fact in many cases it helps, because it aerates the soil,
and can help keep soil from getting too packed down,
and if you top dress you can work your top dressing into the soil.
and it will help you soil dry out.
and it industry standard, i use a metal two foot probe, it's oldschool, i know they sell plastic, lightweight probes.
