Re: What's wrong with my Melocactus?

IanW tbank you so much for the advice. I don't think I've killed her completely and I'm confident that the plant will pick up now I know to be slightly more generous with the water as I am with the heat! I will update in due course hopefully with good news!

Re: What's wrong with my Melocactus?

Thank you for the advice which I'm going to adhere to and keep my fingers crossed the plant has still got the roots!

Re: What's wrong with my Melocactus?

I'm hoping that it's because she's building her cephalium then its why she's lost condition? I will up the watering slightly and see how we go. With regard to Uebelmannia, I have a small plant I keep indoors with the Melos so I will keep that watered thru the winter too - albeit lightly- my last one...

Re: What's wrong with my Melocactus?

Thanks Tina I'm a bit gutted I might have killed her off inadvertently! Funny thing is I'm watering the seedlings regularly but just not the mother plant. If the roots have gone does that mean the plant won't flower - I'm assuming they only flower if fully healthy?
