Hi there. A couple of months ago I removed the moon cactus top when I noticed rotting in the stock. Luckily the stock plant (which I'm assuming is a dragon fruit cactus) started growing again. The problem I have now is that it is only growing from side and I'm scared the pot will eventually tip over.

Is there any way to promote grown on the other side of the cactus?

If I repot it into a bigger pot, can I cover up the main stock plant and leave only a bit exposed?

Just curious but if I cut the new growth near some of the air roots, and replant it, will the roots grow and make a new plant? I know that air roots don't act like normal roots so I'm thinking this approach isn't correct?
