My cactus has recently broken but it is still connected on one side. I don't know what to do. Can he be saved or is he going to be lost?

  • Why did your cactus break? An accident (hit by some object) or "naturally" (so probably some diseases)? – Giacomo Catenazzi Jun 14 '17 at 5:48
  • I'm thinking naturally. I checked him today and he was broken like the image I placed. I've checked the inside and there is no sign of rot, it looks healthy besides the broken spot. – Callista Jun 14 '17 at 7:12

I know this happened to your cactus years ago. I just thought it be nice for it to have an answer.

  • Make a clean cut off the bottom
  • Let sit out 2-3 weeks or more letting the cut completely callous (turn mostly white)
  • Plant it very gritty soil
  • Bury up to half of the cactus in the soil
  • DO NOT WATER
  • Place in bright sunny location
  • In 2-3 weeks check to see if it wiggles easily
  • If so, water it. If not, put back for another week or two
  • Let the soil completely dry out
  • Water it
  • Repeat for lifetime of the plant.
