Water the soil in the pot once per week by filling a sink with 2 inches of water and placing the pot into it. Allow the top of the soil to dry completely in between watering. Stop watering in the late fall when the cactus goes dormant and resume again in the early spring.

Furthermore, how much water does a San Pedro cactus need? First up, only water during the active growing season. How often really depends on your pot and substrate, but the best way to be sure is to only water when the soil has completely dried out from the last time. Over winter, water once every month or two.
