The Q&A Archives: cactus

Question: one of the parts of my cacus is growing into my citrus tree. can i cut it off and will it sprout a new shoot and start over?

Answer: Yes, you can cut or break off the cactus pads. Allow to dry for a day or two and then set it a few inches into the soil. It will root and you'll have a new cactus plant.
