Q.What’s Wrong With My Cactus

Zone 8B | Deanna Valladares added on July 26, 2022 | Answered

Recently bought this cactus, it was beautiful and healthy when I brought it home. It’s been sitting in the shade under a crepe myrtle and it’s dropped most of its stalk of flowers and it looks to me like a fungus or insect is attacking it. Can you help please ?

It will appreciate being in bright, full sun, out from under the shrub. They appreciate a thorough watering, but the soil must dry out between waterings.

There are many in the genus Senecio, but I am not sure exactly which this is. They all have very similar care, though.
