Fairy Castle Cactus


Anonymous added on February 22, 2014 | Answered

I've had my fairy castle cactus for 6 months now and it's turning brown. It sits in an east-facing window and I've been careful not to water it too much. What should I do?

It sounds like it may be suffering from the onset of root rot - a result of too much water. Succulent plants should only be watered when their soil has dried out.
