I received this cactus on Christmas Day as a gift. I have not watered it since I received it. The cactus has always received sun. It rained once since I’ve had the cactus. It got a few sprinkles, but I moved it inside once it started to rain hard. The brown spots started coming out of nowhere and now they seem to be spreading to other parts of the cactus. The flower you see on the soil in the pictures is fake. It’s just for decoration.
