OH No! What to do?!
    #619435 - 04/26/02 12:46 PM (21 years, 4 months ago)

So I've been putting my San Pedro outdoors to get sun. I've been pretty good about bringing him back inside when it rains to avoid over-watering. But today I was at work and it started to rain hard. My pedro was outside and it is now SOAKED. I mean fucking water logged. What can be done if anything to help reduce root-rot and other negative effects of over watering?

Any help is appreciated.

Don't squeeze the pancake batter

Drain it by lifting it up, an sort-of drop it while holding it, then reverse direction... and that should squeeze some water out...
but if it were me, i'd trasplant into some dry soil asap, if your worried.

Cacti don't grow very well underwater...

I had the same thing happen to me last week. They were out in the rain for several hours. I brought them in, wiped all of the water off of the plant(very important) and sat them next to a heater. If you don't have a heater, try a fan. You don't want any water sitting on the above soil areas, or rot will set in very quickly. As for the water in the soil, well, as long as it is well draining, you should be fine. When I water my cacti, I soak the whole pot, and it dries naturally. Just don't let there be any standing water in the water catcher under the pots.
