Hello. I was wondering if my cactus had been infected with something. There are white spots all over it, and it seems to be dying. I had gotten it like this and not realized if it was a bad thing or not. Maybe, I'm just getting a little worried over nothing. Thank you so much for helping!

Your cactus is an Astrophytum probably A. ornatum. It looks very happy and healthy.

The spotting is normal for that species. It looks fine to me.
