Corking on Cacti

Corking is the appearance of firm, brown, bark-like tissue of an otherwise healthy plant.  Corking is part of the natural aging process of cacti and some succulents. Corking usually starts from the base of the plant and moves upward, sometimes you'll find corking spots further up the cactus. Nothing to worry about!
