The cactus in question has grown high and slim. It has got to the height where it has bent over to the ground. I have tied it to a post but it is still leaning. Is there anything I can do to restore it's upright position?

Some species are prone to this, leaning over; much more than others. I think it is how they tend to propagate. Some fall over and make many new stems, from the fallen stem. I have a bristle brush cactus(common name), that was growing over towards the sun. It is now growing horizontal. My only suggestion; is to turn the pot if you can. If it is in the ground, perhaps replant with a sun exposure, opposite the tilt. I am still waiting to see, once Summer growing starts, and blooming is done; if mine will stand back up. Mine is in a pot. For some cactus, it is as natural as blooming. Hope this helps. Worth a try. Sometimes they will lean over, as they pup as well; but not that far.
