Hooked cactus turning white

I’m not sure what’s happening here. My other #HookedCactus are doing fine in the same environment
3” pot with drainage
Last watered 2 years ago
The top looks healthy, it just looks like there are twice as many needles, hard to even see the skin underneath…
You may want to remove that flower. it looks like the ones Home Depot glued to the top.
yah. @anthonyr if the glue is on the very top it can make the cactus unhappy for sure cause that’s the growth point. it should give you pretty flowers over the summer if it’s happy though!!
@anthonyr sometime mammillaria (the family of this cactus) turn white. So it may be fine! there are so many varieties of mammillaria too. do a quick Google πŸ₯°
i might have peaked at your oasis (i did) and the yellow top one is glued too 😭
People glue flower onto cactus?!!? Blasphemy 😭😭
Circling back to this - how is this plant doing? @anthonyr
Ah Rest In Peace πŸ™πŸ½πŸŒ΅
