Not sure but as no one else is helping...if it was a succulent leaf I would let it dry and callus over so it’s probably at that stage already then just rest on the surface of the soil and it would naturally seek out with new roots the damp soil. But as they are all pretty dormant at the mo it could take months before it wants any nourishment.
Thanks anyway guys @lydiastirling @Yollymac @chapelbarn I just found it loose on my cactus so it hasn't effected the main plant at all so if it grows woo new cactus and if it doesn't no harm done I guess.
@sarahflamingo Hello Sara, sorry to hear about your cactus, what I recommend you do if you haven't done already is cut that bottom damaged part and leave her out to callus over I say at least a week and once it does then replant it back into soil. Hope that helps
With cacti its best to let the wound heal and harden, large open wounds make it harder to keep alive. It can be done you just have to watch its water very carefully. Its best just to put it on a shelf in a cool dry area and wait a week or two before potting up.
This is my cactus. It is called a Pilosocereus Azureus on the tag but that is just a synonym of Pilosocereus Pachycladus (one in the same plant) if that made any sense. #cactus #succulent #pilosocereus #green #indoorplants #houseplant
