I'm not a cactus expert by any means, but once a month seems like a lot for
a cactus. Some cacti also are sensitive to light. I remember I once had
one that had always faced a particular direction and turning it would cause
it to die. So when I moved, I had to make sure it faced the same aspect in
the new house.
