Q.How Do I Keep My Sun Goddess Cactus From Getting Too Big?

Zone 89148 | Anonymous added on September 14, 2021 | Answered

My sun goddess was originally just 2 guys. Now there are 7 (2 just starting to grow), and it’s just getting too big. Is it possible to separate some of the cactus out and put them into separate pots? Or do I just have to keep getting a bigger pot? Will it not get bigger if I don’t get a bigger pot?

Here is an article that will offer information on the care that they require:
