|I have had to severely prune back my opuntia cactus as it has grown into a walk way. Is there anything I should cover the cut marks with to protect the plant In the past I have always tried to prune at a pad joint and just let them heal over naturally.|

|Pads will heal. Cut pads will sprout several babies.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

|Cactus heal better without anything on the cuts.
