Q.Having a problem with my cactus
Hello, I hope you can help me. I am currently growing a bunny eared cactus, for the year or so that I have had it I have had no problems and has been growing great. However recently I have noticed that it has drooped backwards quite sufficiently. I’m sure that I can’t ‘damage’ it in anyway, but I don’t want it to fall right back to the point where I can’t save it. Have you any tips on how I could get it back to a more stable contition.
*sorry not the best picture in the world, but it shows the angle which it is currently at*

It appears to be following the light. The color of the light distorts the view some, but it seems that it is simply following the light, which is normal. Just make sure to rotate the container away from the light source and it will start to grow back the other way. This is called "phototropism" and is shown by almost all plants.
