Cactus friends

Great! I love my little cacti’s. Out of about eight cactus I got I’m having one that is not doing so well. But had one flower already three blooms and was great! But I need to do some research on the watering? Because it’s been so hot I am not sure how much? how often? Because I feel they need more water than the every two week thing
