Although, as we have seen previously, cacti and other types of succulent plants They are quite resistant to diseases and disorders, at times they can get sick and acquire pests that can affect their development and flowering (if it is the case). And although it is important that we prevent the appearance of them for the correct development of our plant, we must also learn to cure our succulents and cacti when they have become ill or are infested by pests.
It is for this reason that today we bring you some tips for curing cacti and other succulents:
- Yes, although you have tried a thousand and one treatments and have not yet been able to avoid infection or the proliferation of the disease in your plants, it is important that you act curatively as soon as possible, to prevent that same disease from spreading to the rest of the plants that are nearby or grown in the same garden.
- It is important that you keep abreast of the state of each of your plants, in this way if any plant or plants show rottenness, you must isolate it from the rest of healthy plants, in this way you will be preventing them from being infected. If they are planted in pots, it will be much easier since you only have to move and move the pot to another place.
- If you begin to notice or suspect that your plant is affected by a fungus or other disease, it is important that you cut the affected areas to the place where you can see a green tissue (this will be the healthy area of your plant). I recommend that you use healing powders to protect your plant after cutting.
- Remember that if the infection is detected early it will be much easier to treat it with fungicides or chemicals to eliminate the fungus. That is why I emphasize the attention we must have with our plants and their development.
- If after trying a million treatments, you decide to throw the plant out, I recommend that you also get rid of the soil where it was planted to avoid future diseases caused by the soil itself.
