Hi all
I bought this cactus many months ago. I do not know what variety it is I just liked that it did not bite when touched. Now it is growing shoots out of it. I dont know what to do with the shoots. Do I leave them or cut them off? Would appreciate comments.

r from my best subject this, but it loks like a Sedum to me, a succulent rather than a Cactus. The shoots are likely to be either flowers or plantlets, if plantlets you can remove them and pot them seperately or you could let it continue so you have a huge specimen plant.

Thanks Liparis. I'll let it grow for a while and see what happens.
