put it outside dumbass, also how moist is the soil, if its dry and crumbles you need more water, if its moist its probably getting too much water.

How long since you repotted it?

Chances are it's ready for a new home. Pull it out of that one and it'll probobly look like pic related, meaning its totally fucking rootbound.

Break up the dirt as much as you can and repot it in something larger. Also, make fucking sure you get some actual succulent potting soil, not just regular potting soil. They sell it everywhere, including major hardware stores.

If you can't get any, you can use regular potting soil, but make sure to mix it with a shit ton of sand and rocks.

But most importantly, repot it. That thing looks like it's probably been in the same pot since you received it.
>>
>>282711670
>new pot with new soil
There's your answer, probably ran out of nutrients and space
>>
Are you using cactus soil in the pot? Cacti need special soil to thrive in, you didn't just grab some dirt from your yard like a dumbass did you?
>>
>>282711421
>>
>>282710869
Legitimate cactophile here.

It looks like it needs to be fed or repotted. If you've been feeding it regularly with a cactus/succulent feed mix (maybe once a month), then probably it's trying to outgrow it's pot and can't, so you should get a new pot for it. I hope you water it less than once a week.
>>
>>282711932
He's got a dying cactus, it's safe to say he's not only a dumbass, but that he probably did exactly that.

I will pray for your cactus OP, because cacti are awesome.

Godspeed you magnificent bastard.
>>
>>282712010

>cactophile

So you sit on cacti?
>>
>>282711649
Well, maybe the roots need room to grow.

Try a slightly deeper pot? Cacti have taproots, if I remember correctly.

Also, they really don't need to be watered very much, but when they do, they should be watered a lot (think of how much it rains when it does rain in deserts). If your pot has holes in the bottom, you should water until it drips from the bottom.

You should wait until the soil is almost completely dry between waterings.

Did you remember to put small stones/pebbles on bottom like left in this pic?

If you didn't it can drown in it's water. Cactus roots can't handle constant contact with water.
>>
>>282712124
You are retarded.

I spank and shame my cactus. It's a power thing. Imagine the shame and humiliation that a tough, spiky cactus must feel as I dominate it infront of the other garden plants.

Fuck cacti, been impaled by enough of those fuckers down in Peru that I can't stand those worthless asshole plants. Fun fact: if you see really large ones out in the desert, more than likely something or someone died there or was buried there and the roots are draining the nutrients from the body.
>>
>>282711465

It's dry as fuck but isn't that normal for soil? I don't want to put it outside since it rains and snows here in New York.
>>
>>282712428
have you made a baby though? atleast at some point he had a living cactus.
>>
>>282710869
Why don't you take the plant to home depot or something and ask them what to do? I'm sure somebody could help you there.
>>
>>282712509
This is actually a worse idea for drainage than no pebbles. The water tends to get stuck between the dirt and pebbles because of how water viscosity works when transferring mediums.

Making a baby and keeping it alive are two different things. Since you're a typical attention whore, I'm betting you would be a terrible mother.

PM'd you a fix ;)

>>282712765
yeah that's sort of why i asked if you had instead of assuming you hadn't.
>>
>>282712763

I water it once every 2-3 weeks. I don't really measure it I just use like 1/8th of a 17 fl oz water bottle. I've been using the same water from a water bottle for a few months.

I have a 4 year old son who's already come out of the closet and I'm very accepting of him. I'm think I'm doing a fucking good job but unless you have kids you should shut the fuck up because you don't know a thing.
>>
>>282712968
Is the cactus in a cold room?
>>
>>282712968
well, at this point i'd try a little more frequent watering maybe twice as much, also like the other anons said it's quite probably root bound and needs a larger pot with some nice new soil.

My cactus was on the window sill where cold air comes in so I brought it more inside though it's only getting light from a bulb now. Right now it's 77 degrees Fahrenheit but it falls to 73 at night.

trim the dead/dying limbs with a clean pair of scissors, and as others have said it needs to be re-potted

Probably try repotting it, then. That saved my aloe plant.

Also everyone post your gaming cactus now.

If that brown part is completely dead (I can't tell from the picture; maybe some other anon can tell better), you should cleanly cut it off.

The cactus is wasting energy "holding on" to the dead portion.

most succulents actually aren't as desert thriving as people think, it's only that the most well known cacti (suguaro, prickly pear) come from hot arid deserts people associate cacti with heat.
