    Cool

    I bought it like, a gazillion years ago... Its tallish... with long blackspikes... Just one trunk, not branhes...

    It hasnt done anything for as long as I can remember. It just sits there. I repotted it recently because i figured maybe the two inch pot wasnt big enough (lol), and its still just sitting there...

    Wut do I do....orwut is wrong with it?
    Thanks...

    What kind of sunlight is your cactus getting? Do you move it often? How often do you water? What is it potted in?

    When I repotted mine, I got 16 new arms growing in a matter of 2 weeks! Now I am concerned that it will be top heavy. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Because it has never grown!! hahaha

    sorry [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    It sounds like the problem is insufficient light. Could you move it to a spot where it gets direct sun for several hours?

    Also, what have you been using for fertilizer? And how much? How frequently? Thanks.

    Be careful not to burn it by putting it out and forgetting it: cacti grown "soft" indoors must be hardened off slowly or it will sunburn.
