Christmas cactus nipped by frost

I bought a Christmas cactus that looks like a few of the ends were nipped by frost. Should I remove those segments and if so how?

RE: Christmas cactus nipped by frost

If the ends which may have been nipped are much softer and darker in color then the healthy parts, then they were frost bitten and should be cut off. The rest of the plant should be fine and in a few months you probably will not see any signs that this ever happened. Good luck with it. Jerry
