I recently purchased a Mammillaria guelzowiana. How much water does it need and how often? Also is watering it with an eyedropper around the inside rim of the pot okay?
Thanks for your help,
Melli

Hi Melli,
I find that M. guelzowiana can be watered much as other Mamms, but it does need a very porous compost. I water all of my pots individually, with a small watering can, just up to the top of the pot, and the water drains right out through the porous soil - but that's enough. I do this about every 3-4 weeks at this time of year, in my greenhouse where temperatures are up to 32-26C.
