PostSubject: San Pedro Rescue   Sat Apr 14, 2012 12:33 pm

I have had these 2 san pedros for about 2 years. They have not been well looked after.


I was planning re-pot them into larger pots, also to cut the skinny sections off and to repot them.

About 2 weeks ago the one in the first picture stared getting blotches on the skinny section, it got worse and spread leaving behind what looks like sunburn.


That dark spot has been there for a while now, before the current problem, not sure what it is.



This same cactus has these little black guys on it



They have been there for ages, and appear to be coming out of the soil. I have never been able to find out what they are.



So I basically want to know how to proceed, back to a healthy cactus Smile

Hmm, never seen those before. Have you tried putting anything on them yet, like Neem or Confidor?

Looks like some black rot that has healed up. I wouldn't worry too much about it besides the aesthetic damage the plant should recover easily. Those black things can simply be brushed off, I believe they are seeds, possibly from a weed ??

Yeah I have sprayed them with some yates pest killer but to no avail.

I have brushed the balck guys off lots of times but they always return.

I am most concerned about the yellowing lumps in the 3rd photo, its loosks nasty.

Would you recommend re-potting them, cleaning them up and possibly removing the skinny parts? or would it be best to leave for now and re-pot after its healthy again?

The pots they are in currently are way too small and I fear the soil is half the problem.

Yes I would re-pot as they are, this should fix most of the issues. Just go easy on the water for a while.
