The cactus developed a couple of offshoots making it look even more off kilter and one day I decided to see if I could take the larger offshoot and replant it with the idea if it worked okay but if not that was okay too. Leather gloves are needed for this and I have some. I cleared some rocks and dug a shallow hole in the soil beneath snapped off the biggest shoot and anchored the best I could in the hole putting the rocks back around it for support. It had a nice ring of buds on it when I did this about 3 weeks ago now.
Two days ago I noticed it was blooming splendiferously!! I do believe this baby is going to make it!
The arrow is pointing to where I removed the offshoot
