Droopy cactus

Asked October 7, 2018, 8:17 AM EDT

My cactus looks healthy at the top but the paddles on the bottom half are flopping and loose like they will fall off? It’s 40 inches tall in a pot and I’m hoping to plant it outside soon it’s getting too big

Many times drooping cactus pads indicate a response to some stress - such as over or under watering, or low light levels. I would say the plant overall looks healthy.
