While most of my cacti seem to be slightly quirky if not downright insane, the SP pictured was a cutting that has grown overv2 feet tall but hasnt thickened up at all! It just keeps on heading skyward. Will it ever thicken up?

Yes, but it takes a more widely spread root mass and age. It looks healthy even if tall.

You have choice's at this point. Do nothing and let it do it's thing, or

Let it go until the weight becomes top heavy and forces you to take it down a ways, or

be pre-active now and cut it at the narrow area mid way. This will force pups, both from the base and around the cut, and replant the cutting.


I personally would remove the entire thinner section at the midway point, and plant the fatter upper section with the fatter bottom. The thinner section I would start on its own. It can produce some pretty fat pups. I happen to like the way a pot with multiple column's looks, so its just a personal aesthetic...................

Does it ever go outside or get direct sunlight?

Im with pharmer on this one..

Looks like it isnt getting enough light threw the window.

It will mostlikly thicken up with given more light,

However like sky said, it will most likly need a haircut
