I inherited what we think is a pencil cactus but from reading the risks of having this plant, I'm not so sure I want it. I don't see any health benefits at all, thus my question, should I toss this plant? Thank you!

A Pencil Cactus is a very low maintenance plant. The sap can be toxic and can cause some issues. If you have children or pets in the house, you may want to pass on this plant.
