Frozen Cactus

Our cactus froze,  I believe. It is all brown on the top. Should I just cut it, or what do you do to a frozen cactus?

Cactus

I have a tall cactus that has branches coming off the main plant that turn upwards (I don’t know what it is called). It has a type of thorns and the shape of the body and branches are a type of diamond shape. Anyway, the stalk looks like it is dying. Do you know if startings can be made off of the branches?

A friend told me to listen to the national weather. When it rains in Arizona, water your catcus. In other words, not very much.

How to Clean Cactus to Bring Inside

I seem to have webs on my cactus that has set out all summer. How can I get spiders and other pests off enough to bring them inside?

It sounds like you have spider mites. This article will help: http://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/insects/spider-mite-treatment.htm

Also, using the hose to spray them off is often enough to get the pests off to bring them indoors.

Poisonous Cactus Houseplants

My 5-year old nephew grabbed a cactus plant with both hands and is at ER. Not sure what kind of cactus plant it is. Doctors need to know if it is poisonous or not. How do I find out?

ANSWERS

If he simply grabbed it and was stuck by the spines, then he's not likely in any danger of being poisoned. Generally, the only way any cacti could poison somebody is if it were ingested, and even then it's only likely to cause stomach upset and/or vomiting.
