I recently bought a peyote cacti and just realized i have no idea how to care for it. I dont want to kill this rare species, i bought it believeing it would bloom once a year and it would remain the same dark green/blue color. Can you give me tips on what kind of lighting conditions to give it and if there is a specific amount of water i should give it each month. Also how frequently do i water it?

My peyote plant has gone all soggy I don't think I've overwatered it. I live in south Australia. Could it be from the cold? What should I do?
This is likely due to root rot, but certainly if temperatures are cold it could harm the cactus.
I was gifted a Lophophora williamsii and am struggling with it. The bottom is shriveled andnit seems to be moving upwards. It's hard. I can't seem to find snything online to help me. I am desperately teying to save this endangered plant. Any advice is welcome.
My first instinct is to wonder if the roots are getting too much water, but it seems you have the right soil. Check to see whether it's getting too much heat, too much cold or a draft, like from a heater vent. You may want to try to propagate the plants, just in case they are going down for good. This article explains the serious stuff, like root rot and fungal diseases.
