Help! I want to save this plant, my best friend moved to AZ and sent a small part of some various cacti and succulents. I\'ve never been good with house plants but this guy thrived for years and now he doesn\'t look so hot. This one has always been a favorite and I\'d be so sad to lose him! Can I save him? What\'s wrong?
Unfortunately is looks like the base of this cactus has developed a rot.
This is likely due to overwatering or poorly draining soil.
You can propagate the pups from the cactus.
