Q.What\’s Wrong With My Cactus??

Zone montreal | aisha_m added on March 17, 2021 | Answered

It started getting these boil-like spots on it, and the “spikes” are turning dark at the tips, it has some fluffy white stuff but not too sure if that’s a normal part of the cactus or not, since many cactus grow fluffy white stuff my big question is, is it dying? can i save it? thanks!
