Overwatered Christmas Cactus

Anonymous added on March 30, 2011 | Answered

I overwatered my Christmas cactus. I took it out of the dirt and some of the pieces were real rotted. I cut off the rotted part and I am now going to let them sit out for a few days. Do you think I can save my plant?

    It has root rot. It is hard to say how well it will recover. This article will help:

    I would get some starts from the plant, just in case it does not make it. This article will help with that:
