Q.Can A Moon Cactus Sustain On Top Of Very Small Base Rootstock?

Zone Udupi | Anonymous added on January 27, 2021 | Answered

I have a moon cactus whose base rootstock had 75% rot. So I removed the rotten part carefully and have planted it. Now my doubt is since base rootstock is very small, should I regraft cactus on to a new rootstock or is the remaining healthy part (which is very small) enough to sustain the cactus?
