So, after my dear Mammillaria Hahniana got Orange Rot, I thought I could save her, but I couldn't. Today I checked on her and the orange rot had spread to her entire surface, so I'm super sad. But I went to Home Depot today with my boyfriend and picked out a Money Tree. I'm fairly familiar with their care, since I worked at a gas station and they had one in our window, but now that I have taken one home with me I'm curious about the care.
I read that they can't exactly be put in front of a windowsill. I placed her on a desk NEAR the window. It gets the light but not the blazing heat from the window. I want to eventually Bonsai her, make her thick and miniature. (I know that comes with special bonsai soil mix and fertilizer)
Are there any other special tips I should know? I checked her soil and it was dry all the way through, so I watered her quite a bit, but not enough to where the water was draining, also picked off some dead, black leafs. My house doesn't get the BEST sunlight. The bathroom and on top of the movie case stand in the living room truly do get the best rays of sun. I have a lot of succulents and propagation going on in my bathroom. I also live in Placerville, CA. The temps lately have been 50-60 degrees F. On Monday its estimated to be 80F. So the temp seems to fluctuate time to time...
Any tips you can give me are helpful. I could ask 1,000 questions! Thank you!!!
