I am new to this site and new to all gardening really. The site is great and great advice. I am new to Cactus growing and have had a Opuntia Bergeriana for a good few months. Its growing in the bathroom window sill and is doing really well. Its nice and green which i assume is good. I would like some advice on, if its growing tall and one of the paddles growing off it is long and thin and is bending over on its self. Should i put a cane along the cactus and tie this long stem to it until its strong enough to support its self. I am thinking that the bathroom is warm enough but maybe not light enough due to not much flower action.
How do i know when to repot, also can this type of cactus go outside in the british weather, or i could move the cactus onto the window sill into direct sunlight. any help would be great for a novice like me.
