My cactus is shriveling, This is what to do

Cactus rot is a super common problem, and one of the main causes of cactus death. In this post, I talk about the causes and symptoms, answer all of your questions, and give you step-by-step instructions for how to save a cactus from rot. Rot can start anywhere on a cactus plant. It could start from the bottom and spread up the plant. It could start at the top and spread down. Or it could start anywhere in between. No matter which parts of a cactus plant are rotting, there are steps you can take to save your plant.

I always kill them. When it comes to how to care for succulents and cacti, there are three main factors that affect their rate of survival: light, water and temperature. Too dim or too bright light, too little or too much water, or too cool or too hot temperatures and often a combination of all three will make your succulents and cacti unhappy and start behaving strangely. Depending on the type of succulent or cactus, symptoms of mistreatment vary dramatically. They can be challenging to diagnose and often confused for one another.

If you notice that your cactus has discolored, dry, or drooping leaves or segments, there are a number of possibilities for what could be bothering it. First diagnose the problem and give it the proper immediate care. Then take steps to give your cactus the best chance for long-term survival by providing it the appropriate soil, light, and environmental conditions. If the cactus seems shrunken, wrinkled, or wilting, give it water. If the soil is not dry, move the pot to an area where the cactus can get more sun. If the cactus is turning yellow or brown, it is getting too much sunlight and you should move it into a spot with better shade. Cut away any brown or black parts of the cactus to prevent rot from spreading.
