Hello!

Last year I had purchased a 6 ft Peruvian apple cactus and I was wondering if I could get some guidance on the plants current health.

I've attached a photo for reference. It has three plants coming up, two which look really healthy, ridges are plump and a darker green color. The tallest plant is looking a paler green, the ridges are thinner, almost look like they have been sucked of moisture, and are starting to wrinkle a bit. I love this plant so much so I want to do what's best to keep it healthy but I am not sure if I am over or under watering it or how best to remedy the issue.

Any help out be amazing. Thank you!!

Cheers,
Kasi Turpin

When the blades and stems are soft and spongy it's a sign you need to water. Water about every two and half weeks and let a tiny amount water drain out in the drain tray. Don't let it set in water as you already know. If you have already watered and its showing signs then there may be another problem, I think it just needs water. Pretty cactus.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
