Did I just murder my White Ghost?? Cane back from a trip and found my White Ghost like this. Brown skin has spread from the bottom. One of the arms was completely mushy and I cut it off.

is this sunburn?

I would like to take cutting off this cactus but it does not have a joint like my others. I am afraid it will bleed and effect it negatively. Any advice is appreciated.

Hello! Showing off my Huernia Zebrinas, otherwise known as the Lifesaver Cactus. As you can see, it's flower looks like a lifesaver candy. (Gregg's app identifies it as another type of cactus). They are doing well receiving full eastern sun in the morning til about 1pm. Anyways, I'm curious to know how many peeps out there have one of these and how lucky they have been re-potting them. The stems are very delicate... they break if you look at them wrong!😄 What's the best pot for them? #lifesavercactus #heurniazebrina #repotting

What plant is this

This is just a reminder to anyone that may be taking time to be hard on themselves over a plant: My grafted Coral died. It was overcome by a fungus that appeared out of nowhere and seemingly over night when I first noticed it. Three days later, the coral folded over from top to bottom and I decided to say goodbye. I did it swiftly while giving myself enough grace to not be bothered by it for too long because it can simply happen. Plants pass on because they each have a life span. When you buy that plant, you aren’t certain how old it is and what it’s conditions were before you adopted it and gave it your home to thrive in. I say this because a lot of my plants from the rainforest have signs of symbiotic issues but the newest leaves that grew with me are perfect. I remind myself that those new leaves grew in the environment I provided, not the one the other leaves originated in. The same for my coral. My Coral prompted me to write a note to every plant parent about lifespans and how we aren’t aware if they are close to its end or it’s exact environment to replicate for the same appearance. 🤷🏽‍♀️ Listen, be kind to yourselves. Those of us that share tips are always learning too. Our plants pass because it’s their time or we were sideswiped with something we didn’t see as it was just too sudden and too late to rectify. I’m not sad. I celebrate the joy she brought me. I enjoyed my coral beauty. She was elderly and I knew she was on in her years when I adopted her. Be gracious with yourselves when your plants pass, even if they are young or seem young. You’re learning and you’re trying; that’s what matters. I think this post is more about proof that no matter how perfect someone else’s oasis may look, they go through the same issues you do, the same issues you currently have, or the same issues you are going to go through… eventually but hopefully not. [Fingers crossed]. Just remember that it’s not always you that has done something wrong. It’s just nature. No matter how much you try, it’s simply nature. You can always adopt again. That said: Goodbye, Faizah. You were with me for an entire year. You were a conversation piece. You will always be the beauty that introduced me to corals and made me fall in love with them. We did good, old girl. We did really good. 💗 #CentralTexasGang #SucculentSquad #GraftedCactus #PlantTips

My tiny little cactus has sprouted a flower! I had no idea it did this but it's so cute!

Species of Frankie?? Hello all! Quick question but is Candelabra the right species for this cactus? I thought i remember it being different when I bought it, but I can’t remember. Thanks! DC

Do they grow a flower?

Has anybody ever seen one bloom?
