How should potted Opuntia tuna be watered scientifically?

In different seasons, we water Opuntia tuna differently.

The scientific and reasonable watering method is:

① In winter (November to march of the following year), Opuntia tuna is in dormancy.

At this time, its physiological function is weakened and its water consumption is less.

This is good for its cold resistance.

Therefore, we should control watering at this time.

If we don’t water properly, it will freeze Opuntia tuna.

② April to October is the growing season of Opuntia tuna.

At this time, we should master the principle of no drying, no watering and thorough watering.

Except for the plants that have just been turned over or transplanted, we generally need to water once every 3 ~ 4 days.

③ From June to August, if the basin soil is well drained, we can water it every 1 ~ 2 days.

And we can water it in the morning or evening.

④ Because the root system of the newly transplanted plant is damaged, we should suspend watering.

At this time, we just need to keep the basin soil slightly wet.

We can water a little after 7 ~ 10 days.

After 3 weeks, we can increase the number and amount of watering.

⑤ In the morning or evening, we should use a spray to spray water on the basin surface to increase air humidity.

This will make Opuntia tuna grow better.
