Hi... i am having a problem with my Opuntia cactus. I hope you might be able to help me with my beloved cactus. I erroneously overwatered it
and now the ears are sagging. I already had to remove part of the root of one ear. Is there any way to save this treasured cactus?

Thanks in advance!

Someone else will be along and proable give you a better answer, But have you repotted it with dry soil. If its not to late, that will help just getting it out of the water logged soil. Do you have a picture of it that you could post?

Does the flower pot have a hole at the bottom for drainage?

Cactus soil must have sand mixed in it. You dont water them often....Say once a month, and then nothing......

Mix bonemeal in the soil....it love bonemeal.
Mine live under neglect .....I just mixed garden soil with sand and bonemeal......Put it into a clay pot.....However the other one is in a shiny pot with no drainage..Cause they were seeds I germinated and didnt transplant.
