help to save cactus
I transplanted this cactus from my Dad's place in Albuquerque to Oklahoma a year ago after he passed away. I scooped it up using the New Mexico soil it was growing in and put it in a little cast iron pot, placed it in a sunny spot in the house and was watering about once a week. When I brought it to Okla, it only had two short sections at the base. Now, it has taken a amazing growth spurt and has crazy looking ears and fingers. Recently I began noticing the bottom two sections were dying. In the pic's, you can see all the wild new growth but I am worried it will die because of the base sections. Can anyone tell me what kind of cactus this is and what I can do to save it? It is sentimental to me because it was my Dad's.
