I recently bought a Dessert Gem cacti, I didn’t know how bad the dye was for the plant until I did some research when I got home. Anyways, the other day I accidentally broke one of its arms off and now it’s soft and falling apart. Some of the arms are literally just falling off. Please help, I don’t know what to do and I can’t find anything online. I don’t want the poor plant to die

Set it on soil. It appears firm and ready to leave the parent plant. Some varieties propagate by their little arms breaking off and rooting else where. It’s also nice to have a full pot. I sometimes fill a pot or start new pots using their “branches”. Your choice.

What you have in your palm is called a pear , it is a fruit though not necessarily edible. If placed on soil it will take root as long as the soil is not entirely dry.
