It looks as if you've potted your plant directly into a container which does not have drainage holes; if that's the case, it needs to be moved into a pot which does have drainage holes. If you want to stand that inside an outer pot, that's fine, but always empty that out 30 minutes after watering, to make sure the bottom of the plant pot is not sitting in ...

Looks pretty root bound, could be too much or too little water or very possibly salt build up/ salt burning... i need more detail...when you water how do you water? From top or bottom? Do you water till it comes out the bottom of the pot if from top? Is the runoff very dark colored? Also when plants get root bound they need more water to penetrate all the ...

It seems reasonable, however, it might tend to clog up/ provide inconsistent water distribution a lot. And maybe check to be sure the roof runoff wouldn't have tar or nutrients poor for the flowers etc. If unimpeded it would be inappropriate during a heavy rain. Regulating the water would be problematical, even if it didn't clog up, just as in regular ...

Looks like a healthy cactus! perhaps mammilaria pilcayensis: that's something they may naturally do when getting around 22-30cm in height; in nature they may grow in clusters, and this helps them expand outward a little. The side its leaning toward likely has become a little weaker than the other side. As long as it looks ok it likely is: closeups might ...

The metal part you are holding is the outer non-kinking protective pipe. There should be a flexible rubbery tube inside. I hope it hasn't retreated far down the pipe because it has to go over the barb on the fitting shown. Once the tubing is on, then you can see if it just compresses against the outer pipe (most likely) or needs a special part.

I would say it is just wind and a limited number of plants. I used to grow about 4 short rows of corn in a very open location , I used very little ,if any ,water and never had any fall over. Rabbits moved freely in the garden.

You don't get pressure from either sump or pond pumps. A pond pump that puts out 20 ft. of head ( 10 psi) would be relatively high pressure . A home water pump would be most practical . It has been many decades since I bought one from Sears but it was relatively inexpensive. It is important not to let the pump run dry. There were small reciprocating pumps ( ...
