My Purple Candle Cactus

There has been a lot of things going on, but I could not keep up with writing all of them here. The easiest thing I can talk about right now is my purple candle cactus. I’m into succulents, if that’s still not obvious by now. And purple candle cactus is one of my favorites. I’ve had it for about maybe eight years now. It always gives huge, intensely-purple flowers every May. The picture above was in 2017. This was last year:

This year however, I never got to see it flower. Instead, I saw two babies coming out:

Is it dying?

Anyways, it looks like it is time to replant (behead) the old plant.
