Most cacti are prone to rot if kept in wet soil for prolonged periods
- especially plants with broken roots, or otherwise damaged plants,
are very susceptible to rotting. Lophophora plants are pretty easy as
long as you keep them in well draining soil and let them dry out
completely between watering. Only water the plants when they are
actively growing and keep them dry during their dormancy period.
Overwatering is probably the single factor responsible for most cactus
deaths in cultivated plants. I always repot in bone dry soil and don't
water for a couple of weeks after repotting in order to let any broken
Rotting areas are usually of an orange-brown to dark brown color, very
soft and mushy to the touch - the epidermis breaks easily revealing a
wet and decomposing interior.
