Watering fertilising Astrophytum
Bought this beautiful specimen a month ago from a local nursery at my place.It was growing in polybag in bone dry media and kept in shade away from direct sun and rains.
When I brought him home shifted him in 8 inch clay pot and gave water after a weak of repotting.Being new to cacti I searched web to know their watering/fertilization requirement and got more confused,so seeking support from experienced growers on this forum.
Please guide me as to when and how to water and feed it and shall I keep it in full sun to accelerate growth.Right now it is kept in my porch getting just 30 minutes of direct sun and natural light rest of the day.Media is two parts coarse sand,one part vermi compost with a spoonful of bone meal.
thanks for going through the post and your support
