Your question: How do you save a cactus that broke in half?

The best thing to do is leave the cactus in the pot alone. the place where it broke will heal over and it will send out new branches from below the break point, probably in the next few months. The top that broke off can be saved too. Get a new pot and well draining potting soil and stick it in that pot.
