So i've been a lazy dumbass and waited a bit too long before planting my cactus, it has already started to grow roots but the top looks horrible, can i cut off the top and let it heal or is it better to try to dry it up more and re-root it?

Plant it in the ground, cut the top off.

Should i wait 1-2 months before cutting off the top or can i just do it straight after planting it into the ground?

Do not wait. Cut it off the top and put in the ground asap. Callousing is for the part that goes in the ground only. The top will heal over better if the plant is getting nutrients from the ground.

Get you some sulfur powder. After you cut rub it in. It will cauterise the wound and help prevent further infection.

Dude is it really necessary? Like these plants have all these anti-bacterial alkaloids in them, you've got to fuck up pretty hard to get them to rot in the first place. I'm curious as to why you think it might be worth the effort though, you obviously have some experience.
