The stem has gotten brown and feels very flimsy- is it dead/dying and is there anything I can do to save him? I repotted it a few weeks ago with cactus soil for reference. Thanks!!

Sorry but RIP your moon cactus. It looks like he’s overwatered. Touch the base, is it squishy? If yes, overwatered. Sadly the moon is only a graft and can’t live without the base cactus.
@AllieTerrarium thank you for replying! Yes it’s squishy, I think you hit the nail on the head. RIP Gimley πŸ’”
@user237b8042 If it helps, I’ve never been able to keep a cactus alive. But I can repeat the usual: make sure to let them dry out and especially for people like us β€” drainage is a must.
They are really hard to care for sometimes don't be discouraged
They usually die because they are grafted together
