Q.Can you provide any tips to help my cactus?
We purchased our favorite cactus 6 months ago upon moving to Florida, and the big guy is rapidly growing! We’re blown away. It has started to lean and expand on the top, and I’m getting worried it may topple over. Can you please share any tips on how to best care for our cactus? I have been watering it probably every third day, so maybe too much water? It’s located on a patio with partial sun, in northern FL.
