How to grow cactus and succulents – complete guide for beginners


Hello friends this is Ayan. and today”s tutorial is all about Complete guide of cactus and succulents in seven easy steps. So, lets start.. Hindi ( same as English ) First of all Break terracotta pot pieces into small pieces Or you can use small brick chips as well Hindi ( same as English ) By this way you will get a very good quality well draining soil Now wash well to remove all excess dust particles This step is very crucial to grow cactus and succulents or even make bonsai soil. Now take one part of brick chisp One part of perlite. One part of gravel And one part of vermicompost. Now you can use a little bit of fungicide. I am using contact Fungicide.. Add it iin a very small quantity. Mix it well to get your perfect Cactus and succulent potting mix. You can use little bit of compost or bone dust with it. To make pot for your cactus and succulents You have to find a good quality ceramic bowl. You have to drill a hole bellow that. Always add water before drilling. Don’t drill straight Start from a slanting position And then gradually straighten it up. Hindi ( Same as English ) Now use a window screen on the drainage hole otherwise all the soil will be washed out I am adding soil And one thing is to be remembered DO NOT WATER 3 DAYS BEFORE AND AFTER POTTING That will damage your plant Roots of cactus and succulents are very delicate So, handle with great care.. Hindi ( Same as English ).. Now you can add small amount of gravels over the top of your soil that will give you a very rough and tough look and it will help to keep the moisture in soil. Before talking about watering Lets first make the watering can. Fertilize your plants with 20-20-20 NPK fertilizer Once in 2 weeks Add 1/4 th tablespoon of NPK with 1 liter of water. And give it to all the cactus and succulents. Allow the soil to dry out completely between successive watering. Usually water once in 7 days. The most common disease you will find in cactus and succulents is fungal infection. To treat fungal infection use contact fungicide in very small quantity and add it in a spray bottle and spray it. If the case is severe spray 2-3 times per week Shake it well before spraying. For propagation take a small cuttings from your plants and let it dry for 15 days in shade then pot it in well draining soil and water it. Friends, can you see how much the plant is grown in just one month ? Succulents can be grown from leaves cutting as well. Just place a leaf on soil and do nothing. You will get new plants.
