Q.Column Cactus Droop and Die

Zone Arizona | DragonbornB52 added on September 18, 2013 | Answered

I have 2 cactus plants in my yard (Phoenix, AZ). They are different but both form tall columns (San Pedro/ Organ pipe).

The one that branches out farthest tends to droop half way down a column. Then it breaks at the bend or the whole arm breaks off. What can cause this. How do I fix it?

This question could best be answered by your local agricultural extension office. The only think I can think of is lack of water. Have they just been planted?
