Cactus With Orange Pumpkin Looking Flower


Anonymous added on April 17, 2016 | Answered

I have a cactus with an orange pumpkin looking flower on top, but the orange thing is rotting. It had 2 smaller balls on it as well. Can I plant the little balls because the big one is rotting? .

You have two options with those two small healthy pups. You can pot them up:

or you could try grafting them onto to another cactus:
