A Droopy Cactus

(Question)

I have a cactus in my window sill.  It’s been a great little guy up until recently.  It started drooping severely in the past 5 months or so.  It seems to not like being watered at all, as it seems to induce more drooping.  It does somewhat stand to attention when it’s sunny though.  The window location where it is, faces north.  Its name is Beardy, as he is covered in white hairs, an impressive amount of furriness really.
Many Thanks for any advice.

Sorry to hear that your cactus is ailing.  I found an entry on our Toronto Master Gardeners site that discusses the care of cactus during the winter months, particularly the need for some “intelligent neglect”.   Click here to check it out.  I hope these recommendations will restore Beardy to cactus health.
