Q.

What to do about night blooming cereus stems

Zone 95204 | Anonymous added on March 12, 2020 | Answered

My night blooming cereus has put out stems with what looks like roots growing put from them. What do I do if anything? Do I cut and root them? Do I support them? What are they about?, it has never done this before. It used to live outdoors in Long Beach. Since moving to Stockton, where it is colder I brought it indoors for winter.

Those hairlike projections are just aerial roots that the cactus uses for climbing. You can ignore them.
