COULD YOU PLEASE TELL ME IF THE CACTUS ITS HEALTHY? before I repot it
it wasnt so tall and didnt have so much hair. After I repot it I think
it got taller plus the hair grew a lot. Anyways I got a feeling that
the cactus is a bit rot but I m not so sure cause Its my first one.
please help. I dont want to loose it. Thanks in advance

No , dear, it does not look like rot. This is metabolic spots on the plant.
For sure you plant has lack of sun - it tends to grow taller than wider.
I would like to see than spot again zoomed - could you take off soil around
it to let me see deeper?

I took it out from the pot, I hope this is more helpfull. I bought it
when it was 2 years old and I kept it in the original pot for 2 more
years, maybe a bit more. it looked fine even when I repoted it in a
bigger pot. I got it in a bigger pot since end of March. To be honest
I live with my girlfriend and sometimes she opens the curtain. you see
here is mostly sunny. Thanks a lot man and I hope you help me a bit
with it cause I dont wanna loose it . If you want more pics, just
ask.

Hi,

You have a healthy plant there although you might be feeding/watering
it too much? Of course plants will grow faster and sprout tufts when
repotted since the new soil will be relatively nutrient rich. As for
the plant itself I believe it is the Decipiens or Texenis variety and
not Williamsii. Not certain but fairly confident it is not the latter
type. Not that it matters- another year or two and you will have a
baeutifully mature plant- look after it!

Sclaws

ps I can send images to confirm my opinion if you like.
