Fixing Broken Cactus
I have a potted cactus that fell. The top portion of it broke off and the top inside of the cactus is now exposed. If I leave the cactus alone, will it regenerate the broken portion? Is there anything I can do otherwise (such as cut the top part of it off cleanly)? Thank you!

It would likely be best to simply cut the broken piece from the plant, which will callus over and heal. The top portion can also be propagated to make another plant, if desired, rather than tossing it.
