An explanation of the strange red-orange structure at the left is warranted: it's an old broomstick propping up an equally uncomfortable large fig tree in whose pot the cactus also resides. It reminds me of a tale the Wizard tells. Visiting a beautiful garden in Kyoto, he observed that the graceful plum tree would look better if it wasn't propped up with a 2X4. His host informed him, "Japanese people don't see that." Likewise, I am blind to the broom handle, but not to the blossoms.
The Wizard observed that Westerners might prop up the tree with a thin carbon-fibre rod, painted to match the background, to make it invisible. For my plants, it is probably soon time to just do a good repotting; I'd like to think they could hold their own.
