Consider the age of the plant.Most cacti do not begin to bloom earlier than 3 -5 years.This time period varies greatly not only between members of different genera, but among specific representatives of each kind.Some specimens bloom only 10 years to achieve, and columnar and globular cactus desert at all in the second ten.
Provide favorable conditions.Think about how well you take care of a cactus.Make sure to repot the plant regularly.Fresh ground and the necessary irrigation - an indispensable condition of his health cactus and flowering.On the other hand, excessive protection and "overfeeding" organic fertilizer or a mixture of mineral salts only slow down the development.During readiness to flowering
cactus should be fertilized only with a solution of potassium phosphate.If he had scored buds, leave nature to do their work independently.
cactus Provide fresh air.Put it in the summer at the open window.If possible, leave the plant outdoors day and night.The evening temperature drop has a beneficial effect on him.The more fresh air gets cactus, the less he will be exposed to disease and bloom sooner.
Move the pot with cactus as little as possible.Plants do not like change, so try to water the cactus without moving it from its place.With the change of the position of the pot varies and the side facing the sun, which adversely affects the growth.If you still need to move the plant, make a small mark on the pot and be guided by it, again setting the cactus on the windowsill of the same side of the sun as before.
Put a cactus in the winter in a dry and cool place.Hibernation - the most important stage in the annual cycle of growth cactus, when the plant is "resting" after the summer growing season and gaining strength before the next season.This period is characterized by a state of absolute rest: the cactus does not bloom and grow.If hibernation is successful, very soon the plant will appreciate fresh buds without any additional effort on your part.
