Cactus fertilization
Cactus and succulent plants

Manure for such plants must be done with fertilizer rich in phosphorus and potassium.

Nitrogen should be given in limited quantities, that stimulates plant growth, weakens tissues and increases perspiration. Manure must be made during late winter to spring to stimulate growth and flowering.

Liquid fertilizers are preferable because they do not tolerate the persistence of salts in the soil and require micronutrients.

A good fertilizer for these plants must contain a good amount of phosphorus and potassium, a small amount of nitrogen and a small contribution of micronutrients, among which the most essential as iron, boron, zinc, magnesium and molybdenum.
