1. Cultivation method of dwarf chin cactus (Gymnocalycium baldianum)

(1) Watering method

Dwarf chin cactus (Gymnocalycium baldianum) does not need too much water.

Under normal circumstances, we can water twice a week.

But we should also judge according to the actual situation.

The simplest way is to touch the ribs of dwarf chin cactus (Gymnocalycium baldianum).

Although it has thorns, it is not very prickly.

If we feel it soft, we can water it.

And we should pay attention to watering thoroughly at one time.

(2) Soil preparation

Dwarf chin cactus (Gymnocalycium baldianum) grows best under alkaline sandy soil.

We can mix garden soil, rotten leaf soil and fine sand evenly for configuration.

We can also directly use general nutrient soil.

(3) Sunny

Plenty of sunshine can make dwarf chin cactus (Gymnocalycium baldianum) expel more beautiful flowers.

When we raise dwarf chin cactus (Gymnocalycium baldianum) at home, we must move it out more to bask in the sun.

Dwarf chin cactus (Gymnocalycium baldianum) can accept direct sunlight in all seasons except that it needs shade in summer.

(4) Fertilization problem

We can apply topdressing after the flowering of dwarf chin cactus (Gymnocalycium baldianum).

We can use thin rotten liquid.

Household surplus rice washing water can also be used to make fertilizer after fermentation.

This is very simple and convenient.

2. Precautions for cultivation of dwarf chin cactus (Gymnocalycium baldianum)

(1) Replace basin soil

When dwarf chin cactus (Gymnocalycium baldianum) grows to a certain extent, especially when the flowerpot has no room for dwarf chin cactus (Gymnocalycium baldianum), we change the pot.

The basin change should be carried out in spring.

At the same time, half of the soil should be replaced.

We’d better add a small amount of base fertilizer, bean cake or sesame paste residue.

(2) Pay attention to ventilation

In hot summer, I think we should not only shade dwarf chin cactus (Gymnocalycium baldianum), but also often move it out for ventilation.

The long-term lack of indoor air circulation will lead to the poor growth of dwarf chin cactus (Gymnocalycium baldianum) and even its non flowering.

(3) Colonization and rooting

When dwarf chin cactus (Gymnocalycium baldianum) is colonized, we’d better prune it.

We should keep good roots to avoid root rot during cultivation.

Otherwise, it will affect the normal growth and development of dwarf chin cactus (Gymnocalycium baldianum).

(4) No watering in winter

When we don’t need water in the winter, we need to water the gymcallus.

At this time, because dwarf chin cactus (Gymnocalycium baldianum) itself likes a dry environment, and in winter, dwarf chin cactus (Gymnocalycium baldianum) is basically in dormancy.

We don’t need watering at this time.

Watering will break its dormancy and is not conducive to its growth.

Conclusion: through the above introduction, I believe everyone knows the cultivation methods and precautions of dwarf chin cactus (Gymnocalycium baldianum).

I hope you can raise a beautiful dwarf chin cactus (Gymnocalycium baldianum)!
