:-) Since my OH does not want to open the ceiling I will have to cut it down. We have skylights but not in a location where I could put a cactus, although it would be neat to see it grow even higher. It grew too fast and is very skinny. I had to tie it all together.

A bit mean of your OH not to open up the ceiling,Klahanie Lol.Had it grown so much while you were away? I guess it wouldn't survive outside,given your winters..I wonder if you cut it back,it would send more stems out,to make it bush out more,but then you might end up with a forest :o)

I will leave it outside in the summer and then cut and replant in the fall. Might end up with a cactus forest Bloomer. LOL.
....or find someone with high ceiling house to give it too but I do not think our close by hotel would take cactus for their lobby Homebird. :-)

If you cut it will it send new shoots up from the old stem ?
