What’s goin on here ?
Can anyone tell me what’s going on with my cactus? I got it from my moms house in this condition and I’m really hoping I can save it as it’s part of my grandmas cactus she brought home from her visit to Texas YEARS ago, and she’s no longer with us. She had it in a plastic pot with not so good drainage so I transferred to a bigger Tera cotta pot with new succulent soil and put it in a south facing window. #CactusClique #HappyPlants #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #NewPlantMom

😬 I'm sorry- I think that's scale. If you want to keep that plant, you'll have to carefully scrape of off.
One thing you can do is if it's only on those pads, you can remove them and the plant will regrow them in time.

◦ Scale, if treating small infestations, responds well to pruning and rubbing alcohol.

I agree with @sarahsalith on this too.
Sorry about your family cactus. Hope it recovers from the infestations. 😢
@Pegster thank you! I was able to save some of it
Nicely done!
