Even if your cactus is planted in full sun, it may lean. The barrel cactus grows southward toward the sun so much that it practically lies over on one side. If the cactus is otherwise healthy, this is not a danger. However, if a cactus planted in partial shade is leaning, it may need more sunlight.
Furthermore, how can I make my cactus grow straight? Staking Immature Cacti
- Dig a hole behind the cactus, opposite the leaning side.
- Push a 6-foot stake carefully into the hole.
- Wrap green horticultural tape around the stake and cactus.
- Tie a loose knot in the tape and cut off the loose ends with a pair of scissors.
