Frost-bitten cactus should survive but will be leathery
Published 06/30/2010, Park Rapids Enterprise
Q: I have a question about my spring cactus. Right now, it is blooming beautifully! I live in Texas and this past winter we had several hard freezes. Not knowing any better, my poor cactus was left outside. Now it has very brown and leathery base growth. I am not sure if I need to remove that part of the cactus or just let it grow out. The new growth is healthy and doing fine. I am baffled, so any help would be greatly appreciated.Word count: 536
