Can someone out there help me identify what is going on with my Cactus here? I looked online by can't see anything that matches. I really don't want to lose this to disease or ??? It is not mushy and the roots seem solid.
I has been exposed to loads of consistent light over the winter, consistent room temperature of 70 degrees F or 21 degrees C Can someone out there help me identify what is going on with my #sanpedrocactus here?

It needs more light now and I see the container seems way too big for it. I would suggest you reduce the size of the container, make it slightly grittier too by adding more pumice or perlite. Since you are growing it indoors for now, bring it out gradually. If it is not too rainy on your side and your overnight temps is stably at 50F to 59F (10C to 15C), you can start to try bringing it out to get more sun, do it part sun first to acclimate then into more sun later on.

It really enjoys as much sun as it can during its growing period.

So, it was in a grow room all winter, and its always inside. How do you account for seasons when you are inside all year.
I can change up the size of the container easily but its sister is in the same container and is doing much better. I will separate both again. They have grown significantly the past year but have not flowered.

Welcome!

Is your San Pedro grafted? Its not lack of light your plant is suffering from - the growth point (tip) looks good.

The worrisome part is right in the middle - did it suffer an accident?

No accidents.

They were in very small starter pots and over the winter we were renovating, so they ended up sealed in the grow room, rather than their usual living room location. When I moved them I transplanted 2 into one grow container.
