Q.Can You Trim Down And Replant A Cactus.
Hello, Jeff here. I looked up “replanting a cactus” on the internet. That’s how I found your website. Anyway, I was given a cactus in a small arrangement. I relocated it, it grew larger of course and now I’d like to repot it. Will it regrow if I cut it down closer to the base and just replant it? I don’t know much about the variety of cactus but I’m interested in learning about them. I kinda like the growing it, slow, easy, neat to look at. I’d appreciate any help.

Yes, you can divide or trim and replant many succulents. Yours may be a variety of haworthia. You need to let the tips callus over a few days before repotting.
