i bought a mini garden with a moon cactus in it, when i transferred it all to a new pot, i noticed the bottom half of the moon cactus was actually buried under the soil causing it to dry off and fall off, the top half (plus the pink ball at the top) seem healthy, will it be okay? will it continue to survive?
