Overwatering?

Post by Mark07 » Sat May 18, 2019 11:05 am

Hello, I think I already know the reason why this happens. It’s appeared after a generous watering a few days ago. Any suggestions on healing? Or is it best to let be. Looks a very deep wound! Thanks.

Copoiapoa, Turbinicarpus, and Cintia are most prone to this in my experience.
Makes the plant a bit ugly, but otherwise should not be a problem.
