How do you know that cactus is happy?
A strong, succulent stem, upright leaves, evenly green outlook and strong roots stand out as some of the characteristics of a healthy cactus. A healthy cactus will hold a considerable amount of water without showing any signs of weathering and will bloom bright colored flowers each flowering season without fail.
Why does my cactus keep moving?
If the cactus is leaning from the ground, it may be loosely planted in the soil. Improper watering may be the reason. After watering a cactus, the soil must be allowed to completely dry out before watering again.
Why is my succulent wobbly?
The reason why the plant begins to wobble is due to root rot, which generally occurs when the plant gets too much water. You need to understand that the number one cause of death of cactus plants is root rot. Along with that, the plant is also going to register a significant drop in firmness.
What does it mean when a cactus leans?
A cactus plant leaning and falling over is a sign of overwatering, underwatering, pest damage, root rot disease, or an oversized pot. Repot the succulent in a container that leaves only 2 inches of space on the sides then water it when the top 2 inches of soil is dry to fix the drooping problem.
