Cactus care and i.d.

I have this cactus plant. The entire pot fell and a few individual cactus ‘stems’ fell out of pot. I stuffed them back in. Please advise. Thanks Liz

Although not a true cactus, it is a very close relative of Euphorbia baioensis. These will root themselves back in no time. Just continue to care for it like you would a cactus, and it will recover and be just fine.

Have care when handling the sap. Most species are relatively harmless, only causing mild irritation to the skin. Some, however, are very toxic, causing burns and breathing issues from inhaling sap particulate. Just make sure that you wash your hands after touching this plant.
