san pedro rot
Hi, other cacti lovers. My name is Nathan, I seem to be having some trouble with a couple of my San Pedro cacti. I bought two top cuts around a month ago from an online vendor It took a couple weeks to get here, they were plenty calloused once they got here, as well as healthy. I planned on growing these, obviously mother nature has different plans for my beautiful cacti, because they are starting to rot. I have attached a picture. I also have a soil meter the soil stays dry, the soil is also rocky with plenty of perlite, lava rock as well as small river rock. The soil meter reads (1) on all pots at all times. I did however spray them a few times with the anti-fungal NEEM, but I did not over saturate at all. I checked on them a few days ago and saw what I found out later on the World Wide Web as being rot. I had also used rooting hormone powder on them. So what exactly am I doing wrong here? I want to be successful in rooting these top cuts, All the info I can get would be great and If you guys need to know anything else I will be more than happy to oblige. Would it be better to use Clonex rooting gel, I have some on the way?
