Okay, my friend gave me a cactus for valentines day, I immediately fell in love with it. To me plants are just like pets and they require the right amount of love and attention. Well, I noticed that they had stupid straw flowers hot glued to it. I felt the same as when there is a tick on my pup, so it was a natural instinct to pluck them off. Now, I fear that i have either killed it or permanently pulled the spines from it. Please tell me if it is a total loss, or what i can do to help it. I am worried as if it was my child. Will it ever grow its spines back? What are my consequences for this terrible mistake?

The cactus will be fine. Did you rip the skin off of it? Most people pull off those glued straw flowers.

By the way, can we see a photo?

No, i did not rip off the skin, just the spines. It is still super cute and hopefully one day the spines grow back. It is a bristle brush cactus and in just one moment i will post a picture.
