Thereof, why is my cactus growing sideways?
Even if your cactus is planted in full sun, it may lean. However, if a cactus planted in partial shade is leaning, it may need more sunlight. A cactus in this condition will look sickly and have weak, flimsy stems that are yellow-green. The plant should gradually be exposed to stronger sunlight to prevent sunburn.
Also, what's wrong with my cactus? As with any plant, cacti can become diseased or damaged. A common problem is soft spots in the flesh of the plant. These may be discolored or corky around the spot and the center is mushy and wet. The reasons for such spots may be disease or simply mechanical injury to the pads and stems of the cacti.
Also, how do you tell if a cactus is over or under watered?

How do I know if my cactus is dying?
A dying cactus is shaky in its potting mix and may appear as though it's about to fall off – well, it will definitely fall off if you moved it, for a severe case. A sign of lack of roots. Or the existing ones may be too weak to properly support the plant.
