Can anyone give me advice on how to maintain this cactus plant? I think it’s getting a bit out of control, but I don’t know if I’m supposed to cut it back or help pick her up further or what. Any advice would be great! :)

I think they're meant to be more erect than this so you may want to shape it a little. It's a euphorbia so be wary of its sap which is a skin irritant. Here's a guide to pruning pencil cactus, although I'm sure there are better ones on YouTube http://libanswers.nybg.org/faq/222583
