Cutting down cactus
Can this cactus be cut back and the cutting replanted?

Keep in mind that cutting the cactus back can kill it, although they have been known to recover quite well as well. Any cutting you take will be able to be rooted by caring for it as if it were a living cactus. It will grow roots, and turn into its very own plant, and an exact copy of its parent.
