A fertiliser that is reasonably balanced but with less Nitrogen, otherwise your cactus will etiolate. Also if you can get a fert with micro nutrients and other goodies that would help.

I thought cacti liked high nitrogen fertilizers during the grow season? I figure you're only giving them fertilizers during the active grow period, and not the dormant winter period.

Pure blend pro claims that their fertilizer works well with cactus, but I wouldn't know personally. PBP sure does keep the ladies nice and green, though.

Have you thought about making an organic fertilizer "tea" instead of chemical fertilizers? It's just a thought, not suggesting that you should or shouldn't.
