Hi & welcome! Is your cactus in the most sunny spot you have? That would be the most important thing, having enough light. How long have you had it?

Requesting to move this to cactus/succulent forum since there's a great one here.

The less I interfere, the more balance mother nature provides.

My bf found it on the side of the road I've had it about two weeks and it's in the sunniest spot. It actually sprouted so new cactus thing so I think it's going to be okay. I'm going to repot it soon. What kind of dirt do you recommend

Your BF dug it up from the side of the road? Where do you live? If BF dug it up, plant it back in the ground someplace. Its going to get HUGE!
