Its root rot is usually caused by three reasons. First, because watering too much or too frequently, plants can not absorb water, will hinder breathing, thus rotten roots. Second, improper fertilization, too frequent application or high fertilizer concentration lead to root burning and root rot. Third, the soil is not comfortable, the permeability is too poor to hinder breathing, and the roots will be retted for a long time. Whatever the cause, we should treat it as soon as possible to avoid deterioration, otherwise the whole plant may die.

1. Water once every few days

When maintaining the crab cactus orchid, water it once every few days according to the season, and do not water it at will.Generally in spring and autumn temperature is very suitable, the growth rate of plants is relatively fast, water demand is more, so to water frequently, usually 3 to 5 days watering once.In summer, the temperature is high and the evaporation of water is fast, but there is also a lot of rain.Therefore, it is usually once every 1 to 4 days, and it is watered frequently in sunny days and stopped in rainy days.In winter, the growth is slow and the evaporation of water is slow, so it is OK to irrigate once every 20 days.If the temperature can be controlled at about 18 degrees, it can be once a week.

2. slow growth how to do

1. Change pots and soil: The slow growth of Zygocactus may be caused by soil discomfort. The soil is heavy in viscosity and easy to harden. In this case, the root system does not breathe well and cannot provide water and nutrients well. The growth will naturally slow down.To replace the soil in time, the soil should be ventilated, permeable and fertile.

2. Suitable temperature: Its slow growth rate may also be caused by unsuitable temperature environment.The temperature suitable for growth is about 20 degrees, too high or too low will affect growth.Summer must be more ventilated, winter low temperature must be controlled, the temperature is guaranteed to be about 18 degrees, low can not be less than 10 degrees, otherwise not only slow growth, but also may frostbite.
